                                     Who We Are

The Anglican Catholic Church of Saint Mary the Virgin is a small but growing mission parish within the Anglican Province of Christ the King. We are a Continuing Anglican church in which we worship Jesus Christ, the Incarnate Son of God, and honor the Blessed Virgin. We are former Episcopalians, Lutherans, Roman Catholics, Methodists, Mormons: a home for all those who wish to worship Our Lord in faithful obedience to His word. 

We make a joyful noise unto the Lord in thanksgiving for his sacrifice, once offered, for the salvation of the world.

WHY WE ARE ANGLICAN CATHOLICS

SAINTS OF THE ENGLISH CHURCH
Augustine of Canterbury 530-604

Born in Italy, St. Augustine was made the first Archbishop of Canterbury by Pope Gregory the Great.  By his industry, the kingdom of Kent was converted to Christianity and the see of Canterbury became a reknown center  of learning.



Our faith rests on the unerring truth of the Gospel, Holy Scripture, and the redeeming sacrifice of our Lord Jesus Christ. As St. Thomas More observed, we hold our faith in our hands like water, whole and complete, from which all who thirst for salvation may be refreshed, knowing that if we open our fingers even slightly, what was once whole slips through our fingers and is lost; the whole becomes a part and the part grows less and less until the truth falls away completely and our hands are left empty. When Christian churches choose to let fall away fundamental truths of the Gospel and replace the words of Our Lord and his apostles with compromise, political correctness, expediency, and a rush to embrace vain trends of the secular world, we are called to stand fast in the faith given us by Christ Jesus, his apostles and saints. We affirm our Catholic and Anglican heritage, holding fast and witnessing to the faith received once for all, eternal and unchanging. 


We acknowledge our Anglican heritage as that of the martyrs and saints who were the first fruits of the Christian faith in Britain. We acknowledge that we are Catholics in faith and practice, for our Mother the Church has many daughters and we are among her eldest. We worship God alone in the unity of the most Holy Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We honor and revere the saints of God by whose sacrifices and examples we are called to witness our Christian faith, knowing that they stand before the throne of God the Father in praise, joining their prayers to ours for the salvation of the world. We venerate the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Holy Mother, by whose obedience to God's command our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, was made man. 


Praise and glory and honor and majesty be to our risen Lord Jesus Christ, by whose glorious resurrection we are saved unto eternal life.  

+Amen.


Almighty God, we give thanks unto Thee that by Thy word the Blessed Virgin Mary was born chaste and free of sin; through whose virginity was born our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to be the redeemer of the world. Even as the angels honored the Virgin, so do we venerate the same Handmaid of the Lord who remained obedient to the word of God and a light to all who believe. 

+Amen
