Exploring the Episcopal Church
Let's start with the word Church. In the Christian tradition, Church means both the building and the people. Episcopal means having Bishops, and we are a church which is organized nationally, regionally and locally. The local congregation that gathers each Sunday to worship together, while having its own unique identity is a part of a greater congregation of the Diocese which in turn is part of the national Episcopal Church. Follow the Episcopal Church link to explore what we believe, what we do, and who we are. Follow the link to the diocese to explore our Diocese and meet our Bishop. The Episcopal News Service is in-depth reporting and analysis of local, regional and international news for Episcopalians and others interested in the church's mission and ministries.
