What is Episcopal?
The Episcopal Church is part of a worldwide communion of churches that is called the Anglican Communion. These churches all trace their roots back to the Church of England and the English Reformation.
Churches of the Anglican Communion are catholic (with the small “c”), meaning they are worldwide, and reformed, meaning they separated from the Roman Catholic Church in the reformation. Anglican Churches continue to have liturgy and sacrament that would be familiar to a Roman Catholic while having a strong regard for the preached word and Scripture.
