The Episcopal Church
The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion – find out more about it here. Most of their parishes are situated in the United States, but the church community expands into other countries of the world.
Episcopalians in Europe
St. Augustine’s is part of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe. The Convocation is like a diocese but as its churches are distributed over several European countries, everyday life for our Bishop Pierre Whalon is slightly different from that of his colleagues as it involves a lot of travelling. Some of his activities can be followed on his blog.
The Convocation allows us to ppol our resources and participate in formation and discernment events and conferences that we would not be able to organise on our own, as a parish. For example our annual Vocational Discernment Conference, this year from 25-27 November 2016 at the Villa Palazzola, Rome, Italy. Here’s the Discernment Conference 2016 flyer with more information and Discernment Registration Form .
