‘Anglicanorum Coetibus and the Church of Our Lady of the Atonement…’

Miller, Duane Alexander. 2011. ‘Anglicanorum Coetibus and the Church of Our Lady of the Atonement, the Founding Parish of Anglican Use in the Roman Catholic Church, Feast of St. David of Wales, 1 March 2011′ in Anglican and Episcopal History, Vol 80:3, September, pp 296-305.

In this church review I go through the history of John Paul II’s Pastoral Provision, and the establishment of the Anglican Use in the USA, and the more recent Apostolic Constitution of Benedict XVI, Anglicanorum Coetibus.

Our Lady of the Atonement (San Antonio, Texas) is the founding parish, and by far the largest one, of the Anglican Use in the American Catholic Church. After reviewing the history behind these initiatives, I describe the liturgy and the physical space of our Lady of the Atonement.

I was born in Montana and grew up in Colorado and Puebla (in Mexico). I completed a BA in philosophy at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) and then an MA in theology at St Mary's University (also in San Antonio). Later life took me to Jordan where my wife and I studied Arabic, to Israel where I helped found a seminary, and to Scotland for doctoral work, among other places. I live in Madrid now where I teach and minister. I'm highly interested in the interactions of Islam, Christianity and secularism in modern contexts. My main areas of research for my PhD in divinity were religious conversion from Islam to Christianity, contextual theology, and the shari'a's treatment of apostates. I've also published research on global Anglicanism and the history of Anglican mission in the Ottoman Empire. I've had the pleasure of teaching in many places over the years: from Costa Rica to Turkey, and Kenya to Tunisia. I am at-large lecturer and researcher in Muslim-Christian relations at The Christian Institute of Islamic Studies (www.tciis.org), and deacon at the Cathedral Church of the Redeemer in Madrid, Spain.
