Thank you for looking at our website! We hope this will give you an idea of who we are and what is our purpose. We invite you to join us.
Saint Bride’s is the Anglo-Catholic parish in The Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia. Anglo-Catholic means that we are fully Anglican (from the Church of England), yet follow the theology and liturgy of the Catholic Revival in the Church of England, known as the Oxford Movement. Every Sunday we offer a High Mass with incense, chanting, classical yet singable music with pipe organ.
We have a statue of Our Lady of Walsingham, with votive candles. Walsingham, England was the first Shrine to a vision of the Blessed Virgin Mary, ca. 1061. We also say the Angelus or the Regina Coeli at the end of every Mass, and have a Rosary Group.
Our members include former Roman Catholics, Congregationalists, Methodists, Baptists and Presbyterians as well as life-long Episcopalians. They may have attended Anglo-Catholic services on vacation or while in the military and felt drawn to the beautiful liturgy. St. Bride’s provides a common tread in the expression of strong traditional liturgy, Bible based teaching and a small church experience.
This is a wonderful and warm parish to live out a traditional Anglican life as a disciple of Jesus Christ, in the fullness of the Catholic Faith.
We encourage all children to attend Mass in the church. The parents and grandparents in the parish are welcoming to and tolerant of little ones.
