An Episcopal Dictionary of the Church

Prayer Book for Soldiers and Sailors, A

This small volume of ninety-one pages was published by the Army and Navy Commission of the Protestant Episcopal Church in 1941. It was sent as a gift to those serving in the army and navy as a “reminder that the Church follows you into the Service with deep interest.” It contained An Order of Worship, The Holy Communion, Prayers, Psalms, readings from the Bible, and thirty-eight hymns.
