Anglican Rite, Archdiocese
of the Americas: 'A traditional, liturgical, sacramental, catholic,
and orthodox Church. We are traditional in that we keep to the traditions
and teachings of the ancient undivided Church founded by the Apostles

in that we use the 1928 Book of Common Prayer and the Anglican Missal
in our worship'.

on the parish level'. (Note: We're delighted that the web site
