Specifically our tradition is located within the broad and largely western stream of Christian liturgical development but has been influenced by eastern liturgical forms as well".

St. Mary's Anglican Church [Church of England ?] -- 3. St. Mark's Anglican Church [Episcopal Church ?] -- St. John's Anglican Church [Japan]. Article concludes with "Suggestions for Study".
