An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church

Certain Trumpet, The

This journal was published at Norwalk, Connecticut, from Mar. 1972 until Feb. 1981. It was founded and edited by Perry Laukhuff, who wrote that “At Minneapolis [the 1976 General Convention], the Episcopal Church unilaterally altered the sacred Apostolic ministry by purporting to allow the ordination of women in the contravention of Christ's example, theological principle, and the entire history and practice of the Holy Catholic Church. The Episcopal Church also broke, for the first time, with the ancient, orthodox and beautiful Book of Common Prayer by introducing radical changes and dangerously unsound doctrine in a new book.” After the 1976 General Convention, The Certain Trumpet devoted itself to the creation of a new church body. That goal was attained with the formation of the Anglican Catholic Church.
