The First Annual Eileen McEvoy Memorial Lecture on Anglo-Catholicism and the Urban Situation with the Very Rev’d John A. McGuckin
The Church of St. Edward the Martyr welcomes the Very Rev’d John A. McGuckin as the inaugrial lecturer of the Eileen McEvoy Memorial Lecture on Anglo-Catholicism and the Urban Situation.
Fr. John’s topic will be “Sacramental Mysteries and Apostolic Endeavors: The Anglo-Catholic Movement Then and Now.”
The Oxford Movement began a venerable tradition in the Anglican religious world towards a rediscovery of a deeper sacramental spirituality; one that in turn sponsored and inspired a deep commitment to urban asceticism – setting an example for many subsequent generations to find in the sacramental experience of urban liturgical communities the true spur for social activism and compassion.
About the Presenter
Professor and Archpriest John Anthony McGuckin (Union Seminary, Columbia University and Oxford University) speaks to this theme from a background as an Orthodox Theologian to highlight the commonalities in both traditions of catholicity, seeking the mind of the fathers and the rootedness in liturgical spirituality as the source of the Church’s missionary inspirations.
Fr. John will also be available after the lecture and Q&A to sell and sign books during the reception.
