24Nov Advent Prayers 1998

It would be a pity to let the Opening Prayers (Collects) in the 1998 Sacramentary be forgotten. It offered not just one Opening Prayer, but also three alternatives, for the three years of the cycle. They could be a resource for a variety of occasions. Here you can find the 1998 Opening Prayers for the four Sundays of Advent.

Kevin Reynolds for these slanderous comments.  Should the Minister step aside?
