After a lengthy period of "Trial Rites" in various colored covers, the Episcopal Church finally adopted the current 1979 Prayerbook to the dismay of many who preferred the "old" 1928 Book of Common Prayer. However, on of the provisions allowed in the "new" Prayerbook was the right to adopted the contemporary language of Rite Two to the more traditional language found in Rite One. While some parishes did take advantage of this by printing their own in-house leaflets, it was not until 1991 that a dedicated effort to produce a book that would replace the contemporary language with traditional Elizabethan language. This was achieved by The Church of the Good Shepherd in Rosemont, Pennsylvania.
