NOTIFICATION

TO THE DIOCESES OF THE

ALTERATIONS AND ADDITIONS

IN THE

BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER

OF THE

PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CHURCH

IN THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,

PROPOSED IN THE CENERAL CONVENTION OF 1883,

AND

TO BE ACTED UPON AT THE GENERAL CONVENTION OF 1886.

[blocks in formation]

Copyright, A. D. 1885.

NOTE.

THE Constitution of the Church declares that "no alteration or addition shall be made in the Book of Common Prayer, or other Offices of the Church, or the Articles of Religion, unless the same shall be proposed in one General Convention, and by a resolve thereof made known to the Convention of every Diocese, and adopted at the subsequent General Convention."

In accordance with this provision, the "alterations and additions" contained in the following pages, proposed at the General Convention of 1883, and to be acted upon at the General Convention of 1886, have been made known to the Conventions of the several Dioceses, and also, as required by Title III, Canon 1, Section iii of the Digest, to the Ecclesiastical Authority thereof.

As the subject is of general interest to the Church, it has been thought best to print some additional copies of this Notification, of which this is one.

Chas. L. Hutchins.

Secretary of the House of Deputies.

MEDFORD, MASS., April 1, A. D. 1885.
