FAQ: Common Episcopal Church Acronymns

We originally had a post of common terms for Anglo Catholics.  The Episcopal Church had a media release on Oct. 21, 2014 regarding these acronymns.  The release noted:

Do you know the difference between EMM* and ECW*?  Or maybe you know who the PB* is, but not so clear about the ABC*.

Acronyms and terms that are used regularly in The Episcopal Church are presented in an easy-to-reference document located on the Public Affairs web page 

From A (Anglican Consultative Council) to Z (well, actually YASC*), the document is prepared for anyone who needs a clearer understanding of the meanings of acronyms.

It’s easy to check what ECVA* or UBE* is, let alone LEVAS* and NAES*,  and a lot of others.

* Did you know these?
