Like every family

the Episcopal Church has some terminology

which can be confusing!  

Have you ever wondered what a Coadjutor or a Collect might be?  The Episcopal Diocese of Texas website has a great glossary of terms... check it out below..

The long history of the Church has led to the accumulation of many terms that one seldom if ever otherwise hears. Some members of the church delight in using these words, but they really do not mean to confound you by doing so: many of them simply have no satisfactory substitute. The good news is that once you’ve learned a few of them, you can join in the fun as well! The following list should answer all but the most obscure questions, but if you really want to get into the most impenetrable corners with an exhaustive glossary, we recommend that you visit this page by clicking the underlined words Church Terminology
