Mahé: Diocese of Seychelles,
Church in the Province of the Indian Ocean, 1997.
This trilingual service book for the Anglican Diocese of Seychelles includes liturgical texts in Seychellois Creole, English, and French; each of these languages has official status in the Republic of Seychelles, an archipelago in the Indian Ocean situated to the north and northeast of Madagascar. The use of both French and English arises from the fact that the Seychelles were initially controlled by France, beginning in the mid 18th century, but were acquired by Britain during the Napoleonic Wars.
Seychellois liturgical texts are notable for their omission of the Filioque in the Nicene Creed.
Another Anglican liturgical context in which French and a French-based Creole language coexist is the Église Episcopale d’Haïti, whose Litiji Kreyol La is also available on this website.
