"We invite everyone to join in the communal life of the Body of Christ, through participation and leadership in this congregation, and by fully sharing in the life and sacraments of this church. We affirm that each person is a child of God, and that those of every race, ethnicity, creed, age, gender, marital status, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation and gender identity are called to be one with us."--from the Clergy and Bishop's Committee of St. Paul's

What does the name "Episcopal Church" mean?  
"The Episcopal Church" is one branch of the world-wide Anglican Communion numbering 60 million members in over 100 countries. 
It is often described as the "bridge church" because it includes both the Roman Catholic and Protestant traditions. It preserves the ancient Catholic faith and sacraments and the historic ministry with Bishops as its chief pastors. ("Episcopal" comes from the Greek word for "bishop.") It is, at the same time, Protestant, focusing on the basic authority of Holy Scripture and the proclamation of the Word of God. 

  An excerpt from the sermon by Father Nick Lorenzetti on the 3rd Sunday of Lent regarding the Samaritan woman by the well: "The woman demonstrated what can happen when we actually engage in conversation and questions about our faith. She showed us that faith is about dialogue, about growth, and about change. It is not about having all the answers."
