R.M.L.I.D. — The Customary contains a great deal of important information for students involved in the liturgical life of the community. Please download it, print it, meditate upon it, and, in the words of the Book of Common Prayer, "read, mark, learn and inwardly digest".

At all celebrations of the Anglican Community, it is our practice that the presider chant the collect. For information on singing the collect, click here.

Suffering exam stress?

There's nothing quite like the pressure of exams, papers, studying and general theological head-bending to make a student feel stressed out. Perhaps you feel like Saul, King of Israel, who felt himself stretched in several directions at once. In his distress, he was comforted by the youth David, who played the harp for him.

When George Frideric Handel set the story of Saul to music in 1738, he naturally included a harp solo. It's a very beautiful piece, and one that is sure to help reduce brain strain and the general pressure of life.
