A008 Additional Calendar Commemorations
Resolved, the House of ________________ concurring,
That commemorations of Simeon Bachos the Ethiopian Eunuch (August 27), Episcopal Deaconesses (September 22), and Frederick Howden, Jr (December 11) be authorized for trial use for the triennium 2021-2024.
During the 79th General Convention several proposed commemorations were presented to the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music for possible inclusion in Lesser Feasts and Fasts 2018. Additional proposed resolutions were received by the SCLM in the course of the 2018-2021 triennium.
Of the eleven commemorations proposed, the three listed were deemed in compliance with criteria for commemorations in the revised "Principles of Revision" approved by resolution 2009-A098.
These commemorations are proposed for inclusion in Lesser Feasts and Fasts 2018. Biographies for the three proposed new commemorations can be found in the supplemental materials of the report to the 80th General Convention of the Standing Commission on Liturgy and Music's Calendar subcommittee, and also as supporting documents attached to this resolution.
