Albany Via Media is a grass roots organization of clergy and lay people in the Episcopal Diocese of Albany who love The Episcopal Church with her rich diversity and comprehensiveness. We seek to foster the unity of the Diocese with The Episcopal Church.
We are deeply committed to the life of common prayer and the Prayer Book faith we have received. We choose the middle way — the via media between Catholic and Protestant understandings — in the Diocese of Albany, believing that our theology, politics, beliefs on sexuality and other issues are formed in prayer by Scripture, tradition and reason.
While membership in Albany Via Media is on an individual basis, we recognize the parish as the basic unit of the church and the front line for mission.
Please consider joining us as your expression of support for The Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Albany.
