The fellowship of Saint Alban and Saint Sergius (FSASS) was founded in 1928 in St. Albans, England following a Student Christian Movement “Anglo-Russian Student Conference”. It followed earlier contact with the Orthodox Church in England, largely of western converts and, by the 1920s, refugees from the Russian Revolution.
The FSASS is dedicated to contact between Eastern and Western Christians, especially Anglicans and Orthodox. It focuses on study and personal contact, with yearly conferences in the UK, and on sharing Eucharistic services. It publishes and distributes a journal, Sobornost.
The Canadian chapter began in 1955 but applications were not sorted out until the following year, when it was officially set up at Trinity College. Beyond Toronto, the FSASS was mainly active in Ontario, with some involvement by the rest of Canada. It seems to have suffered from organizational and administrative difficulties in the early 60s and again in the early 70s, and is currently defunct. It ceased to meet at some time in the mid-1980s, with record-keeping ending before that point.
