The Bible and Common Prayer Book Society are collaborating with Church Publishing Inc. (CPI) to widen the net for providing Episcopal worship resources throughout the world.
This collaboration will provide complimentary access to CPI’s popular RitePlanning, an online worship planning tool that offers a simpler and easier way to plan liturgies and create parish bulletins, to qualified worshiping communities worldwide.
This innovative move has allowed Church Publishing’s popular Rite Planning series to be available through the Bible and Common Prayer Book Society. RitePlanning offers a comprehensive library of liturgical and musical resources that includes The Book of Common Prayer, The Book of Occasional Services 2003, Lesser Feasts and Fasts 2006, The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible, The Hymnal 1982 (including service music), Lift Every Voice and Sing II, and much more. It also offers fully customizable templates and content for special services and celebrations.
“We are very pleased to continue our work with The Society and are grateful for their efforts to bring critical worship resources to Episcopal parishes and other organizations they serve,” said Mark Dazzo, SVP and Publisher of CPI. “RitePlanning offers an easy to use interface, coupled with CPI’s comprehensive liturgical library, that will result in time-savings on the user’s part and a richer and more engaging worship experience for the entire congregation.”
“Church Publishing has made it possible for us to make their newest product “Rite Planning” available to parishes that request it,” Henritzy said. “This downloadable program allows a parish to assemble a Sunday bulletin with cut-and-paste ability from the entire contents of the Book of Common Prayer, the Hymnal, and others.”
