Episcopal/Anglican Identity

The Episcopal Church traces its origins to The Church of England and The Scottish Episcopal Church with roots in the early, medieval and reformation periods of Christianity in the British Isles. In contemporary terms, The Episcopal Church is the American province of the Anglican Communion comprising more than 80 million members in 44 regional and national member churches around the globe in over 165 countries. Grace parish is proud to count this as part of its spiritual heritage.

Whosoever thou art that enterest this Church know that the Lord Christ is here in His Holy Sacrament Reserved; kneel then, and adore Him; and pray for thyself, for those who minister and worship here; nor forget the souls of the faithful departed. (DeKoven prayer on the Grace parish Northwest Church Door since the late 19th Century)
