Tomorrow our parish will recognize our patronal feast for the Conversion of St. Paul the Apostle. This is from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and can be found on page 229.
Patronal Feasts are connected to the namesake of a Church and ours is named for St. Paul.
In an interview years ago with the Chalcedon Foundation, Rev. Milbank discussed the significance our names. He said, “The names St. Paul’s and Canterbury reflect our English heritage and the English Reform movement of the 16th century.”
The feast of a church’s patron may be observed on or transferred to a Sunday, taking precedence over the usual Sunday observance in the calendar of the church year.
