Additional Descriptive and Event Information:
The Episcopal Church has been called ‘the Bridge Church’ between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism because our beliefs embrace both traditions. We are family grounded in the authoritative Holy Scriptures which infuse our study, worship and corporate life. The Episcopal Church is also deeply Sacramental, believing that Baptism is the door into the Church, that the Holy Eucharist is the central act of Sunday worship, and that the lesser Sacraments tangibly mediate the grace of God in the lives of men and women.
Our greatest theological document is The Book of Common Prayer. This book has formed Anglican thought and practice since its first publication of 1549 and continues its powerful influence in the current 1979 version. The Book of Common Prayer contains the services of the Church, the Psalter, Catechism, Creeds and Historical Documents and is a witness to the Episcopalian conviction that theology is done best while on one’s knees.
