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.
