Why are Anglicans important?

Because they are a Communion of Catholic believers within these Isles and wherever the members have travelled!

For the best part of two thousand years they have held the faith revealed by Christ to the saints and taught by the Apostles after Christ's Ascension! What the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church is today they helped fashion.

The tragedy is, that their numbers have been lessened today by liberalism and a seeking after modernity in theology instead of adherence to the Deposit, as S.Paul termed it!
