Tuesdays, September 14-October 5, 6:30-8:00 pm
The Reverend Deacon John Wirenius introduces the Anglo-Catholic movement and outlines its growth over the past two centuries. Our exploration of the movement will begin with a discussion of John Henry Newman’s role in the first Oxford Movement, move onto reaction to the Movement by selective legal enforcement of the rubrics against Anglo-Catholic clergy, discuss the cultural impact of Anglo-Catholicism, and conclude with the second Oxford Movement, following it into the post-World War I spiritual malaise.
All are welcome to join via Zoom meeting.
