Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic States

The Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic States (DMAS) is part of the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ, faithfully continuing the Anglican tradition. We practice and uphold the historic Catholic Faith, Apostolic Order, Orthodox Worship, and Evangelical Witness of the traditional Anglican Church.

The DMAS of the Anglican Catholic Church strives to be a unified, informed, educated and growing diocese with a deep understanding of the Catholic faith, Anglican worship and the Holy Scriptures.

If this is something familiar to you or something you've been searching for - we welcome you to join us to worship our Lord and Savior in the beauty of Holiness.

If this is something new or something that interests you - we welcome you to explore the information here (and on the Anglican Catholic Church website) and hope that you will consider visiting one of our many parishes in the mid-Atlantic (Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia) region.

March 12, 2016 -
Lenten Retreat
Location: TBD
Theme:  "The Seven Last Words of Christ"
Based on the book "Death on a Friday Afternoon" by the Rev. Richard John Neuhaus, the late editor of First Things.  It is a provocative and moving meditation on the Crucifixion and the Atonement, using the traditional seven last words of Our Lord.  Rather than a simple account or explanation of Good Friday, Father Neuhaus takes readers on a journey unto mystery and wonder, exploring human experience to develop the central theme of Western civilization - the suffering, death, and resurrection of Christ.
