The Anglican Communion in the United States

'Anglicans Online' has a useful page setting out the origins and status of The Episcopal Church, the North American constituent member of the Anglican Communion.

Their page listing churches which are not in communion with the Anglican Communion also lists numerous North American churches. This is particularly helpful in avoiding confusion as there are numerous churches with similar names.

Here is the home page of The Episcopal Church, which includes a 10-minute video about the TEC. Their page called 'Perspectives' offers occasional expressions of The Episcopal Church's views on world affairs.

The Episcopal News Service page is here.

Two subsidiary pages of interest are the 'History this month', which focuses on the Anglican church worldwide, and the self-explanatory 'Fast Facts'.

The Most Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schori, previously Bishop of Nevada, is the twenty-sixth Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church
