Episcopal 101

St. Mary’s Parish is an Episcopal Church.  We are part of the Diocese of Milwaukee and members of the worldwide Anglican Communion… 


  • What do we believe about faith in Jesus Christ?
  • What do we understand about the Bible and its role in salvation?
  • What does our Episcopal identity say about the way we worship?
  • How did you find your way to the Episcopal Church?  What do you like?  What don’t you understand but have always wanted to ask about?
  • What do the various furnishings, symbols and items in our church say to us about our faith? 
  • Why do some people cross themselves, bow, kneel, stand and sit at different times during worship? 
  • Is our Sunday worship called EucharistMassHoly Communion?  What do these terms mean, and why do we use them?
  • Who is welcome in our church?  Is anyone not welcome? 
  • What does it mean to be part of a diocese or to be Anglican?


ALL ARE WELCOME!  Newer members, not-so-new members, anyone who is curious…
