The Mid-Atlantic Parish Training Program prepares future priests of the Diocese of Virginia for daily ministry. The program immerses interns in the life of a congregation, prepares them to enter into a faith community as a priest, provides learning opportunities through mentoring and collegial relationships, and offers interns opportunities to reflect on the summer experience through the lens of the ordination liturgy for the priesthood.

All rising seniors in Episcopal M.Div. programs, Anglican Studies students and those Reading for Orders who are postulants in the Diocese of Virginia are expected to participate in the Mid-Atlantic Parish Training Program.
