Consecrations, St. Andrew's Traditional Anglican Church, What Makes Us Special

The Consecration of Bishop Stephen DelSignore

During a joy-filled Sunday service this past weekend, Reverend Canon Stephen DelSignore was consecrated as the Suffragan Bishop for the Diocese of the Resurrection. In a deeply moving service, Bishop Stephen was elevated to this honorable office because of his unwavering devotion to his growing congregation, his outstanding leadership, and his desire to serve God to the fullest measure. Our Diocese is blessed to not only have Bishop DelSignore serving as the rector of St. Andrew’s Traditional Anglican Church in Middleborough, Masachussettes, but also as a highly respected leader in the National Church.

In a church filled to capacity with parishioners, family, and friends, Bishop Stephen was consecrated by our own Presiding Bishop, The Rt. Reverend Ian Anderson. Also participating in this blessed event was Bishop Del Murray from Florida, Bishop Dwight Irons from Georgia, Bishop Geoff Hubler from Virginia, and Reverend Greg Bennett, and Archdeacon Mark Maurais, both from Florida.

After the beautiful service, coffee was served at St. Andrew’s as a light refreshment before an outstanding luncheon at the LeBaron Country Club. Those who traveled from our congregation at Resurretion Anglican were so happy and honored to be a part of this truly momentous occassion.

We’re pleased to show you lots of photos from this very special Sunday service.

On a personal note:  I always look forward to traveling to Middleborough, Masachussets and visiting St. Andrew’s Anglican Church. But, this church is more than a historic building in a tranquil rural setting. It is a vital and alive congregation filled with some of loveliest folks I’ve had the pleasure to know. They are warm, welcoming, and filled with the Holy Spirit. They love one another and they love and support their pastor. They give and then give some more, showing us a living example of the body of Christ. Their example of reverent worship, unwavering kindness, and refreshing humbleness is beacon of hope in a growing secular world. Thank you for welcoming me and my wife, Robin, allowing us to come among you and worship. We love you all!



Easter, What Makes Us Special

Easter 2018 – He Is Risen!

Happy Easter! Our Lord and Savior has risen…he has risen indeed! At Resurrection Anglican we celebrate Easter both in worship, and with a wonderful luncheon and egg hunt. We filled the church, sang beautiful hymns, and laid the abundant spread that has become our Easter tradition. As the children hunted for brightly colored eggs, the adults feasted on ham, veggies, and awesome desserts, all under our big white tent out in the gorgeous weather.

We are so blessed to have such a close-knit and friendly congregation, and we’re hopeful our visitors enjoyed the day as much as our regular parishioners did. We thank God for the families that were with us, the hands that prepared the food, and the volunteers who always make these fellowship celebrations possible.

Blessings to you all…

What Makes Us Special

Meet Mary, Our New Organist

Mary 1 fb

We are so pleased to welcome a new organist to Resurrection Anglican! Her name is Mary Holbieson and she comes to us with great talent and experience.  Mary has an MA in Sacred Music, therefore bringing a deep classical background to our weekly worship service.

We were so saddened by the passing of our long-time and beloved organist, Ray Bradley, and we feared our wonderful organ would gather dust in his absence.  Yet again, God provided for us in sending Mary to fill our sanctuary with the sound of beautiful hymns!

We welcome Mary and invite everyone who loves traditional worship music to join us each and every Sunday!
