The Agenda for the February sessions of the General Synod was published recently. On Thursday afternoon, the Alternative Baptism Texts return to the Synod after the revision committee stage:
The following items (full details of which are contained in Special Agenda II — see page 9) will be taken:
600 Alternative Baptism Texts (GS 1958A)
— Report of the Revision Committee (GS 1958Y)
and the note on page 9 says:
ALTERNATIVE BAPTISM TEXTS (GS 1958A)
Article 7 Business
Consideration of a Report by the Revision Committee (GS 1958Y)
The Chair of the Revision Committee (the Bishop of Truro) to move:
600 ‘That the Synod do take note of this Report.’
1. Notice of motions for re-committal under the provisions of Standing Order 77(a) must be given in writing to the Clerk to the Synod by not later than 5.30pm on Tuesday 10 February 2015 (Standing Order 10©). Any such motions will appear on a Notice Paper.
2. If no such motion is carried, the liturgical business will automatically stand committed to the House of Bishops under Standing Order 77(f).
There is a tradition of announcing at this time of the year the principal dates of the ecclesiastical calendar.
Greg Kandra at ‘Don’t forget to chant the date of Easter this Sunday’ lists the dates and the usual formula.
Of course nowadays you can just use a printed almanac — or even an online one such as mine.
