A note about Episcopal vs. Anglican churches

Episcopal vs. Anglican

St. Hugh of Lincoln is a part of The Episcopal Church (TEC), which is comprised of the Episcopal dioceses and parishes in the United States.  The Episcopal Church is a part of the Anglican Communion, which is the worldwide group of denominations that are derived from the Church of England.  The Anglican Church of North America (ACNA) also has churches in the U.S., and is also part of the Anglican Communion.  Both denominations use the Book of Common Prayer, though ACNA uses a different version.  ACNA differs theologically from TEC in its views on sexuality and gender, and the ordination of women.  That being said, there are some good articles about liturgy and worship “in the Anglican tradition” on the Anglican Compass website.
