Anglicanism topic of 3-day Episcopal meeting in SC

From South Carolina-

Episcopalians from the southern region of South Carolina are meeting in Charleston for a three-day conference on Anglicanism.

The conference opens Thursday at at St. Philip's in Charleston.

Fifteen months ago, the Diocese of South Carolina voted to distance itself - but not completely split - from the national Episcopal Church over concerns about the national church's consecration in 2003 of its first openly gay bishop.

The diocese is comprised of parishes in the lower and eastern part of South Carolina.

This week's conference is entitled Mere Anglicanism and diocesan officials say educated and active Anglicans are key to efforts to reform the Episcopal church in North America.

The 2.3 million-member Episcopal church is the U.S. branch of the 77 million-member worldwide Anglican Communion.
