    Hello all! I am going to be saying ante-communion on Wednesdays at my school. I've worked on this pamphlet, which in general follows the model of the 1662, though in reverent contemporary language to keep it palatable. Traditional would be preferable, but thats a debate for another day. If anyone would like to check it out, I would be most grateful! The formatting is not quite complete.

    I have read through ot and it looks good. I suspect for ante-communion to versicles should be officiant rather than celebrant, but I take that to be very minor.

    In your Ordinary Time sequence, you might consider changing "for the well-being of the churches of God" to the singular 'church.' That is the only suggestion I have for the text. I would say the petition either way but I think the singular is more consistent with the creeds.

    What led you to select Antecommunion over Morning Prayer or perhaps Noon Prayer?

    Main reason I chose Antecommunion over the other options is congregational ease. I can get packets printed up with the order of service, and that's all they need. With MP, a Psalter is needed, which makes things a little costlier :).
