crossed stoles AND an altar frontal??? They have got to be Anglican
The third photo seems to have been taken in an ill-lit underground bunker.
I'd say ICC is spot on. The crossed stoles gives it away. "Tasteful contemporary" would best describe the brand of higher church that isn't quite the nosebleed altitude of certain other Anglo Catholics. Not *quite* maniple and biretta, but certainly not clown liturgy.
Because Anglicans mostly don't call the service "Mass" except _very_ high A-C's which these aren't.AM
The sisters appear to be Dominicanesque. I find the mobile to be rather fetching.
So, Blog Mistress? Who is it? Anglicans? High Lutherans?
The lighting and the comfy chairs don't look Anglican. Crossed stoles together with a "Benedictine arrangement" on an altar facing the people: but definitely too tasteful to be RC. Mass ad orientem with the congregation gathered around the altar; respectable Gothic chasuble. Icons everywhere. That is "high but not extreme" Protestantism. The nuns stuck in the immediately postconciliar era with the first modification of the habit. Are they the Order of St Helena? But why would they be using a male priest? The beards look monastic. Hilary, a very good contest. When is the answer going to be revealed?
Lutheran in Michigan.
