Roman Catholic AnswerAn Episcopalian, regardless of his persuasion (high church or low church) is still a protestant, even if he likes the more Catholic ceremonies of the high church. Holy Communion in a Catholic Church is restricted to those who believe as a Catholic and are in a state of grace (have been baptised, and have been to confession). An Episcopalian is not Catholic, and does not believe as the Catholic Church does. If he does believe what the Catholic Church does, like everyone else, he must attend RCIA classes and be legitimately brought into the Church at the Easter Vigil. Having been a "high church" Episcopalian myself, I know of what I speak!

Can a Catholic receive communion in Episcopalian church?

No.Episcopalians and any member of the Anglican communion (and I am an Anglican) would welcome a Roman Catholic at the Lord's table for communion, but the teaching of the Church of Rome dictates that Catholics should not receive in another denomination.However, if the Roman Catholic in question still wished to receive in the Episcopalian Church, against the teachings of his own church then he would not be refused the sacrament.Roman Catholic AnswerCatholics may not and can not receive Holy Communion in an Episcopal Church. They may not as receiving Communion means that you believe everything that the Church teaches, so receiving Communion in an Episcopal Church would be an act of apostasy. They can not as Pope Leo XIII in his Bull, Apostolicae Curae issued on 15 Sept 1896 ruled that Anglican (Episcopal) Orders were null and void: in other words, they do not have a valid priesthood and thus cannot confect the Eucharist.


Can a catholic receive communion at an espicopal service?

The Episcopalian Church is a branch of the worldwide Anglican Church - which includes the Church in Wales, the Episcopalian Church of Scotland and the Church of Ireland. Most Anglican churches nowadays practise what is known as an 'open table'. This means that anyone who normally receives Holy Communion (or mass) in their own church (whatever the denomination - Baptist, URC, Methodist, Roman Catholic or any other Christian denomination) is able to receive Holy Communion in an Anglican Church, which, of course, includes the Episcopalian Church. Some Anglican Churches go a stage further and invite anyone to receive Holy Communion, whether or not they are communicant members of another church, their love of Christ being the only criterion for acceptance at the table. In the Roman Catholic Church, however, the inclusive nature of an open table is not reciprocated. The official line is that anyone who is not a Roman Catholic may not receive mass.

May an Anglican take Communion in a RC Church?

.Catholic AnswerOf course not, an Anglican is a protestant, a Catholic Church is Catholic. An Anglican may receive Holy Communion in a Catholic Church after completing RCIA classes and being brought into the Church at the Easter Vigil, but if they wish to remain an Anglican, they are, by that very fact, proclaiming that they are not in communion with the Catholic Church, so to receive Holy Communion in a Catholic Church would be a lie and dangerous to their spiritual well-being.
