Episcopal Church acronyms: what are they and what do they mean?

October 21, 2014
The Public Affairs Office

Do you know the difference between EMM* and ECW*?  Or maybe you know who the PB* is, but not so clear about the ABC*.

Acronyms and terms that are used regularly in The Episcopal Church are presented in an easy-to-reference document located on the Public Affairs web page in English here and in Spanish here  

From A (Anglican Consultative Council) to Z (well, actually YASC*), the document is prepared for anyone who needs a clearer understanding of the meanings of acronyms.

It’s easy to check what ECVA* or UBE* is, let alone LEVAS* and NAES*, and a lot of others.

For more information contact Neva Rae Fox, Public Affairs Officers, at publicaffairs@episcopalchurch.org.
