A Quick Report on the IAF

www.iaftac.org

A newsletter of the missionary arm of the Traditional Anglican Communion

TO say that 2017 was a busy year for our Fellowship would be a slight understatement. As we begin 2018, I find myself reflecting on key events that have occurred, their impact, and diversity. On the one hand, we met our goal of purchasing a vehicle for Bp. Andrew Mukuyamba in Zambia several weeks ahead of schedule. On the other, the disaster that Hurricane Maria dealt our brothers and sisters in Puerto

Rico touched off a rally by our Anglican community to send support to Bp. Juan Garcia, Ordinary of the Diocese of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean (DPRC). More detailed information on both of these efforts is contained in this newsletter.

 

Suffice it to say that, once again, selfless generosity has been the driving force behind the Fellowship’s ability to help meet both a need and a crisis. I am, along with many others I am sure, both honored and humbled to be a part of these two wonderful though disparate efforts. Somewhere in between there, we reached a notable milestone by welcoming our 50th Sustaining Member, St. Barnabas’ Parish in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada.

 Thanks to everyone who has helped keep our Fellowship growing and filling a need in so many different places around the world. Thanks again to Father Glenn Galenkamp, St. Barnabas, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada, for his help in formatting this newsletter.

 

God bless,

Erv Lischke, Executive Director

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols is a service of Christian worship celebrating the birth of Jesus that is traditionally followed at Christmas. The story of the fall of humanity, the promise of the Messiah, and the birth of Jesus is told in nine short Bible readings from Genesis, the prophetic books and the Gospels, interspersed with the singing of Christmas carols, hymns and choir music

Morning Prayer Service (Sexagesima)

Sexagesima: The second Sunday before Lent  and hence the eighth before Easter. Its name, formed on the analogy of Quinquagesma and Septuagesima and goes back certainly to the 6th century. It is also known in the west, from the opening words of the introit, as Exsurge Sunday.  The traditional Old Testament Lesson for this Sunday is the narrative of the Fall (Gen. 3).

Conductor- 'Layreader', Mr. Richard Heiman
