The Episcopal Church for Roman Catholics

The journey away from the Roman Catholic Church is never an easy one. At the Cathedral, many former Roman Catholics find a place to belong, heal and reclaim their faith. The Episcopal Church is, as we affirm in the Creed, part of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. As a Reformation Church, we represent a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestantism.

Like the Roman Catholic Church, we celebrate all seven sacraments, participate in the Eucharist each Sunday, recognize Apostolic Succession, and have ordained clergy. Yet there are key differences including allowing our clergy to marry, ordaining women as deacons, priests, and bishops, affirming same-sex relationships and supporting same-sex marriage.
If you are interested in learning more about our similarities and differences, join us on Wednesday evenings via Zoom (April 7 – May 5) for The Episcopal Church for Roman Catholics. These five sessions offer you the opportunity to explore, learn more, ask questions and find out if the Episcopal Church may be the right place for you.

Anyone is welcome to attend. Please contact Carly Rowe for more details or to register. We look forward to the journey!
