St. Gabriel's, A Traditional Episcopal Church family in the United Episcopal Church
From the parish web page:
"CELEBRATING 20 YEARS, Fostering Faith, Family and Tradition.
Welcome to St. Gabriel’s United Episcopal Church located in Springdale, Arkansas. St. Gabriel's is a Traditional Episcopal Church which worships according to the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and the 1940 Hymnal. We keep fully intact the theology, liturgy and rich heritage of the traditional Anglican catholic faith.
ST. GABRIEL'S is proudly affiliated with the United Episcopal Church of North America (UECNA), which is guided in faith by the Sacred Scriptures, the Nicene and Apostles' Creeds, the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and the 39 Articles of Religion. Backed by two millennia of church history and direct apostolic succession, the UECNA serves God’s kingdom humbly and faithfully.Looking for a church family to belong to? Come and be a part of the liturgical and sacramental worship that the early Christian communities experienced; where we allow His word change our lives rather than change His word to suit our lifestyle, being strengthened by His Word and Sacraments. A church that is faithful to His word in this age and time and serving Him until His Second Coming~Biblically Sound, Sacramentally Orthodox, Apostolically Valid, where God is the center of our life and worship.
St. Gabriel's is also the domicile of the Bishop Suffragan of the UECNA, the Rt.Rev. Leo J Michael whose jurisdiction covers west of Mississippi and the entire national church as well. In a very moving and impressive ceremony, Bishop Leo was consecrated in the line of apostolic line of succession dating back to the times of apostles themselves, through the laying on of hands."
