Joint Liturgical Study 58

This Liturgical Study is dedicated to the memory of Michael Vasey, liturgy tutor at St John’s College, Durham (1975-1998), and a member of the Church of England’s Liturgical Commission (1985-1998), who died in June 1998. It reproduces the text which he originally drafted for the Commission in the early 1990s, as amended both by the Commission and by the House of Bishops, on which discussion was effectively suspended in 1995. At that stage the Commission proposed to further the discussion on penitence and reconciliation in the church by publishing its proposed texts together with some background essays, but the project, which Michael was to have edited, was halted by his untimely death.
