Ask Ambrose: Liturgical Resources for a Major Church Anniversary

Picture of BCP and Hymnal in pew rackQ: I’m looking for some resources (collects, liturgies, etc.) that we could use for a major church anniversary. Shy suggestions?

A: The Book of Common Prayer has Propers for the Anniversary of the Dedication of a Church, and it sounds like they would be appropriate for your occasion. You can find them on p. 1047, and the corresponding collect (Rite II) would be on p. 254.
