One of the distinctive things about being an Episcopalian is
the sense of connection and fellowship one has with
other Anglicans and Episcopalians throughout the world.

The Episcopal Church is part of the worldwide Anglican Communion, a global fellowship of 73 million Christians in 38 self-governing provinces. The Archbishop of Canterbury is the Most Reverend and Right Honorable Justin Welby. While he is sometimes compared to a pope, a more accurate description of his role is that he is "first among equals" with his brother and sister bishops from throughout the Anglican Communion.
