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.

 Lenten Retreat
March 12, 2016

Location: Roanoke, VA

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.
