The Role of the Bishop

The Latin word for bishop is episcopus and thus the name of our church (the Episcopal Church) comes from that Latin root word. Our official name (The Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States) means that we are the Protestant Church with bishops in the United States. According to the catechism on p. 855 of the Book of Common Prayer, the ministry of a bishop is to represent Christ and his Church, particularly as an apostle, chief priest, and pastor of a diocese; to guard the faith, unity, and discipline of the whole Church; to proclaim the word of God; to act in Christ’s name for the reconciliation of the world and the building up of the church; and to ordain others to continue Christ’s ministry.  Read more
