Completely updated to reflect the sweeping changes in worship patterns which began with "The Liturgical Revival" and culminated in the adoption of the 1979 Book of Common Prayer.

Chapters cover preparations for the various services of the Church, plus special celebrations such as Advent, Christmas, Lent, Holy Week, and Easter, weddings, burials, ordinations, consecrations, and others. A glossary of church terms is included.

"A comprehensive manual ...with excellent illustrations…and an excellent glossary of terms…." -The Living Church

Dorothy Diggs writes from over three decades of experience guiding altar guilds in the “care, beauty, and traditional correctness attendant upon the worship of Almighty God.”
