Dia dhuit!

My name is Ken Sporleder and I live in San Jose, CA. I am an Anglican, Irish-Scottish-English American. I am currently seeking postulance into the Diaconate in the Episcopal Church. I am very interested in acknowledging of the importance of the use of Irish in Ireland and Gaelic in Scotland and the development of gaelgoir communities in N. America that are open to all catholics, regardless of Roman or Anglican alligences and all nationalities. I am in pursuit of a Book of Common Prayer in either Irish or Scots Gaelic and thought this would be a good starting point.

Please let me know if you are interested in becoming part of this Anglican Pan-Celtic association.

My email is

Thank you very much.

The Book of Common Prayer (Leabhar na hUrnaí Coitinne)
is available in the Irish language. I have a copy which was given to me a gift (from a Catholic priest!). What particularly impresses me is its use of the Sean-Chló.

You may also want to avail yourself of Canon Coslett Quinn's translation of the NT. Dr. Quinn is a Church of Ireland (Anglican) clergyman and has TWICE been elected as president of the Oireachtas na Gaeilge. Dr. Quinn strongly recommends scripture reading for those who are learning the language.
I find the CofI NT easier to read than the Maynooth translation.

There is an organisation within the CofI for Irish-speakers.
In fact, there is a CofI parish in Dublin that conducts services in Irish.
