May I receive the eucharist at an Episcopal Church?

I am a catholic. My bosses’ daughter is getting married in the Episcopal church and I am invited. Am I allowed to receive communion?

Thank you,
Helen Reardon


The Catholic Church does not recognize Anglican ordination as valid. So their eucharist is not valid either. You as a Catholic are not allowed to give assent to what they believe by joining them in what we consider to be an invalid sacrament.
