What's New This Week

ALL THE NEW URLS we receive each week are here. We list two (sometimes three) weeks' worth, cycling the old ones off each week. As they disappear from this page, you'll find the links moved to their natural home categories in our resource pages.

If you can't find something that was once here, you can look in our archives or try the AO search engine. It searches our entire site, and it can also search all of the sites that we link to.

Holy Cross Episcopal Church: 'We are an independent Anglican/Episcopal church, holding fully to the teachings of the church as passed down through scripture and tradition. We are, however, not rigid or strict in our methods. We believe that each parish should not at all times be the same in formality or decorum. Our clergy have the right to exercise great freedom in vestments, style and worship. We affirm the 39 Articles of Religion. We use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer as our liturgy and our rules of order and structure. We affirm the Nicene Creed as a significant statement of our faith'.
