Forum: One Parish, Two Languages
St. Alban's is moving from sponsoring a quasi-separate Spanish-speaking congregation to being one congregation worshiping in both English and Spanish. The Rev'd Steve Carlsen and Yuri Rodriguez led this forum and shared some of what they learned when they made a similar move at Christ Church Cathedral in Indianapolis. Steve was dean of the Cathedral for a dozen years and is now serving as the interim rector of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Key West.
The forum begins with Yuri, who is associate director of Hispanic music and communications manager at Christ Church, leading the audience in a well-known Anglican chant and showing how it could be transformed.
