Trial Use Collects from Pentecost to the Reign of Christ inclusive

I am very pleased to announce that the first installment of alternative collects for Year A, authorized by the Council of General Synod for trial use where permitted by the Ordinary, can be found at

These collects are alternatives to the collects in The Book of Alternative Services (1985) and, where authorized by the Ordinary, the three-year cycle of collects published in Evangelical Lutheran Worship (2006).

If you use these collects, you are asked to share your comments and suggestions by completing the response form found in the document itself.

The Propers Working Group of the Liturgy Task Force will be continuing its work with collects for Year B.  In the near future the Task Force hopes to publish Morning and Evening Prayer for Ordinary Time and a version of the Psalter of The Book of Alternative Services emended for inclusive language and re-versified to meet the versification of the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible.

May God prosper our handiwork.
