The Benediction and Laping of the Foundation

stone of a New Church.



No one is to build a Church before the spot and ground are

marked out by the judgment of the Bishop, and it is determined what shall suffice for its lamps, what for the stipends of the rector and ministers, and what for the endowment of the Church; nor before a cross is fixed in the place and the first stone laid in the foundation by him, or by a Priest authorised by him. On the previous day, therefore, let a wooden cross be fixed in the place where the altar is to be. But, on the next day, the stone to be placed in the foundation of the Church, which must be a corner-stone, four-square, must be blessed in the following manner. The Bishop, vested over his rochet, or, if he be a religious, over his surplice, with amice, alb, girdle, stole, white cope, and plain mitre, and holding the crosier in his left hand, standing, with his mitre, at the place where the Church is to be founded, blesses the salt and the water, saying :
