Attention Anglican Missions and Parishes

From our friend Fr. Charles Nalls.......

"Good morning, all, Over the years, I have acquired a sizeable stock of church furnishings and “tat”. These include chalices, patens, ciboria, brand new 1928 Prayerbooks and 1940 Hymnals, a couple of tabernacles and even a baptismal font. I have tried to supply new missions with the necessaries out of this burgeoning collection, but the inflow has exceeded the outflow. Storing them has become a logistical nightmare, and it is time to divest. If you have a need, please let me know.

If a parish is without resources, I will consider sending an item for shipping costs only. Otherwise, we can agree on a price that suits the relevant budget—proceeds will be going to support two monastic communities, so generosity is appreciated. As these are sacred items which have been blessed, I will not offer them to other than clergy, parishes or donors who are willing to list the clergy or church recipient of these items. (No E-Bay auctions!) The goal is to have these church goods find an appropriate home. As well, a friend and colleague has closed his church goods shop here in Richmond including a large stock of candles and ”expendables”, and he may have something that will match an inquiry.

Please let me know of your interest and I will see whether I have something that can meet the need. If you are coming to synod next week, I’ll try to remember to bring the inventory book.

 In Christ,

 Fr. Nalls

Just the sort of wonderful thing I would expect out of Father N. I hope that places that need things do take advantage.
