All Saints has new pastor
|Father Dan Warren|
Father Dan Warren of Gloucester is the new fulltime pastor of All Saints Anglican Catholic Church, which will begin meeting at the Middlesex County Museum Annex in Saluda on Sunday, Feb. 1, at 11 a.m.
All are invited to attend the church that has a traditional worship using the 1928 Book of Common Prayer. “Trace our origin to the English Church as it was in the middle 1500s at the time of the Protestant Reformation,” said Father Warren.
The church is a mission and has about a dozen members “who are very faithful,” he said. “Everybody is invited to come and see what we are about.”
Warren is the president of the Middlesex Ministerial Association. He can be reached at 642-6597 and by e-mail at , or visit http://www.acc.org for more information.
Father Warren grew up first in Staunton, and then in Petersburg. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Roanoke College in 1960, and a M.D. from the Medical College of Virginia in 1964. He served as a doctor in the U.S. Army. He earned a master of public health degree from the University of North Carolina. He has an extensive military career and worked for the Virginia Health Department before retiring. In 2002 he earned a master’s in theology from Catholic Distance University and was ordained as a priest in the Anglican Catholic Church. From 2002 to 2009, he was the rector at St. Matthew’s Anglican Catholic Church in Newport News and is leaving that position at the end of January.
“For the past 18 months I also have been the priest-in-charge of the mission in Saluda, holding services Sunday evening, but can now move them to a more appropriate Sunday morning schedule,” he said. “I am also the warden (dean) of our diocesan school of theology, which trains men for the priesthood.”
