Wrong. The Episcopalians are PROTESTANT, not "almost Catholic".<quoted text>how can it be a protestant church when it follows catholocism,except for the pope being universal,big deal,and if you read the news article episcopal will be catholic apparently,attendance is getting so low they have to merge with another church,and since the episcopal follows all their rules except one,it's the perfect choice of churches. wouldn't you agree?
The Episcopalian community in DC is just one community, out of thousands across the country, that decided to leave the Episcopalian denomination and join the Catholic Church. The one in California that you cited is not joining the Catholic Church.
Just say you made a mistake and move on.
