PROTEST FROM THE PULPIT AGAINST THE ST. ALBAN'S DECISION. There was in appreciable diminution of the Ritual- istic ceremonial observable on Sunday morning at All Saint's Church, Lambeth, compared to the way in which the services have for a. long time past bet.n carried out at that place of worship. A public pro- test, officially recited, was however formally made from the pulpit by the Rev. Dr. Lee, the vioar, against the recent decision of the Pnvy Council in the St. Alban's case. The modification of the ceremonial was most marked. There has hitherto been a procession composed of the priests, assistant-priests, acolytes, and choristers, 31 in number, bearing the processional cross, banners, and various insignia, who, entering from the vestry, dressed in the most advanced Ritual- istic vestments, paraded up and down the structure chanting the processional hymn. On Sunday there was no procession the banners were done away with, as were also the coloured vestments, and the ainis- trants numbered ten less than usual. In place, also, of a richly embroidered silk stole, the cele- brant simply wore, besides his surplice, a plain green stole, which latter was laid aside after the Homily and during the consecration and adminis- tration of the Holy Communion. The altar lights, four in number, were retained the elevation of the paten and chalice was confined to slightly raising both from the altar and bowing low, genuflection being also restricted to just perceptibly bending one knee at the conclusion of the consecration prayer. After prayers had been said, the vicar, ascending the pulpit, made the sign of the Cross upon himself with his finger, and, prefacing the statement with the words, By the gracli of God, Amen," read from a paper to the effect that whereas judgment having recently been given by the Privy Council in the matter of Martin versus Mackonochie," by which certain results were brought about touching the form of worship observable in the Church, and by which certain of Her Majesty's sub- jects were legally deprived of. the right to adopt such form of worship as they believed to be meet and proper — I, George lrrederick Lee, viear of all Saint's, Lambeth, having in mind the provisions of Magna Charta, and the terms of my ordination, do hereby solemnly protest against the said judgment, and against the imposition of pains and penalties in matters of Church discipline by the said Privy Council." The rev. gentleman then proceeded with his sermon, which, illustrative of the miracle of turning water into wine, comprised a decidedly expressed dissertation in favour of the doctrine of Transubstantiation and the Real Presence, and of the mixing of water with the consecrated element. The prayers of the con- gregation were desired for the Lord Bishop of Salisbury.
