St Paul's church in Monte Carlo has become the first PBS Corporate Member on the French mainland.
The church, consecrated in 1924 and opened a year later by the Bishop of Gibraltar, lies in the sovereign city state of Monaco on the French Riviera.
"As the newly licensed Chaplain of the Anglican Church of St Paul in Monte Carlo I am delighted that the Church Council unanimously decided to become a Corporate Member of the Prayer Book Society," says the Revd Hugh Bearn.
"The celebration of Holy Communion according to the 1662 Book of Common Prayer has recently been introduced on Sunday alongside other occasional offices including Holy Matrimony and the burial of the dead. Choral Evensong under the Director of Music Errol Girdlestone will take place on Remembrance Sunday this year, and it is hoped that this will lead to a regular pattern."
Welcoming St Paul's as a Corporate Member, Bradley Smith Chairman of the PBS said, "We hope that St Pauls' will be the first of many European churches who benefit from the support and resources that membership of the of the Society has to offer."
