for the reading entertainment of the English Commonwealth, to show you what is happening with the Episcopalian Church in the USA, The Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in the City and Diocese of Washington, from which, "...it is the sixth-largest cathedral in the world, the second-largest in the United States, and the highest as well as the fourth-tallest structure in Washington, D.C. The cathedral is the seat of both the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, Katharine Jefferts Schori, and the Bishop of the Diocese of Washington, Mariann Edgar Budde...."
Ah, Melsom yes, The Anglican Church will no doubt go the way of its American branch,
The Record and the Herald News wrote: The Episcopal Diocese of Newark, for years the epitome of liberal Protestant Christianity in America, acknowledged Thursday in an unusually candid report that it has suffered a steep slide in membership and needs a bishop who can revitalize its struggling parishes. The diocese, which covers seven northern New Jersey counties including Bergen, Passaic, Hudson and Morris, has lost nearly 24,000 congregants, or 46 percent of its membership, since 1972. Thatâ€™s nearly three times the average decline in the Episcopal Church nationwide, the report said.
