More About The Church Publishing Imprint
Church Publishing is quite literally our foundational imprint. Launched as the Church Hymnal Corporation, the original church publishing house was dedicated to publishing a single work, The Hymnal 1918, which remains in print to this day.
In the nearly 100 years since its first publication, Church Publishing has emerged as a principal provider of liturgical and musical resources for The Episcopal Church, along with works on church leadership, pastoral care and Christian formation. With its growing portfolio of professional books and resources, Church Publishing was recognized in 1997 as the official publisher for the General Convention of the Episcopal Church in the United States. Simultaneously through the years, Church Publishing has consciously broadened its program, reach, and service to the church by publishing books for and about the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lesser Feasts And Fasts 2006: The Proper for The, Together With the Fixed Holy Days : Conforming to General Convention 2006?
Saints? Aug 23, 2007
A compendium of the Episcopal Church's authorized celebratory liturgy for the memorials of the Saints. Generally most useful for priests. No one can verify that the legends of some of the saints are truth or fiction. No record of any miracles performed by them or where their bones are venerated.
I missed the story of Saint Ursula and her 11,000 virgins??
Amazing Volume! Apr 23, 2007
This book should be in every Episcopalian's library. The resources it provides for parishes and for personal devotions are exceptional.
The updated Church Kalendar has some great new additions, including a few noted Roman Catholic (esp. St. Ignatius of Loyola - July 31) and Eastern Orthodox (esp. St. Tikhon - April 7). Great Anglican additions are St C.S. Lewis (Nov 22), the Feast of the Ordination of Florence Li Tim-Oi (Jan 24), and St. Philander Chase (Sept 22). My only major regret was that St. Charles I the Martyr was left out! (Jan 30).
Included are some wonderful Propers for the Weekdays for the seasons of Advent, Christmas (until the Baptism of Christ), Lent, and Easter, the Common of Saints, the official guidelines and procedures of the altering of the Kalendar, and two new Lectionaries.
The best part is the Lesser Feasts, which includes not just all the new and old names (note: one or two have moved around), but includes short biographies as well as the Psalm, New Testament, and Gospel Readings as well as the correct Prefaces and both Rite I and II Propers.
Lesser Feasts and Fasts 2006 is an excellent addition to any parish that wants to celebrate the lives of the Saints and for individuals to do the same and to have alternative lectionaries to follow for personal devotions.
A perfect companion with the Book of Common Prayer!
