This Is My Blood

The Diocese of the Northeast is a vibrant and growing family of parishes in New England and New York State. As members of the worldwide Traditional Anglican Communion, we are part of Christ's One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.
Our teaching and practice are based soundly on the Holy Bible and the

traditional Book of Common Prayer.

This Is My Body

In our common worship, we observe the ancient rites of the church through regular prayer and the Holy Eucharist. The liturgy of our church holds us together; it is through common or communal worship that the people of God come together most completely to offer their prayers, sing their praises to God and deepen their spiritual understanding. We encourage all to join with us, to learn the language of our worship and participate in the unique spiritual journey that is the Anglican way.

The Bishop's Christmas Message


Dear Friends,
I have just now received word that The Rev. Nelson B. Skinner passed to eternal life.
Father Skinner, a graduate of Hobart College and Nashotah House seminary, had served parishes in New York and Wisconsin. He was ordained to the diaconate in April, 1962 and the priesthood in November, 1962. A longtime priest in the Episcopal church, he was also licensed by the Province of Christ the King, The Anglican Church in America and the Diocese of the Holy Cross. For many years, he served the parish of St. Mary the Virgin in Liverpool, New York.
Father Skinner and his wife, Beverly, had been married for fifty years. The couple have three children and several grandchildren.
"Rest eternal grant him, O Lord, and light perpetual shine upon him."

The Anglican Church in America is a traditional, historic church. We use the ancient offices found in The Book of Common Prayer. The beautiful language of our prayer book draws us closer to God. The continual use of the matchless prayers contained within The Book of Common Prayer offers us a window onto faith, holding us together as a community that meets in Jesus' name.


We believe firmly that, in today's complex and often troubled world, God's love and protection are essential to a healthy physical, moral and spiritual life. We affirm that the Holy Bible contains all things necessary for salvation. We believe that the sacraments represent outward and visible signs of an inward and spiritual grace. It is our lasting commitment to protect the ancient treasures and teachings of the church, recognizing that these treasures provide the only true shelter for our passage through this temporal life. They are indeed gifts from God; it is our task to care for them, to preserve them and to pass them on to other faithful Christians.
