We have bishops, priests, deacons, seven sacraments, weekly communion, saints, monks and nuns. We celebrate familiar church seasons and feasts. We believe the same Nicene and Apostles creeds. We believe that the communion bread is Jesus’Body and Blood. Our bishops are in the same unbroken line of succession from St. Peter as Roman Catholic bishops. We are very proud of our catholic heritage. And because we are so similar, a large percentage of our members come from Roman Catholic backgrounds. Families from mixed denominational backgrounds have always found a particularly comfortable home in the Episcopal Church.
