I have two preschool-age children who attend an Episcopal school, because there are no Catholic preschools in my area. It’s a good school and even though affiliated with the Episcopal Church, it’s really more of a non-denominational Christian school. The director is Catholic, actually.
My daughter asked me if we could go to mass at the Episcopal church some day, mostly just because she’s curious how it differs from our mass.
I went to an Episcopalian mass once before. It was a tiny rural town with only two churches: Catholic and Episcopal. The pastors decided to promote interfaith dialogue by inviting the congregations to attend the other church one weekend, and I went. Their mass was more different from ours than I expected, but there was nothing I found surprising.
I’ve been thinking of taking the kids to the Episcopal church just to let them experience a different form of Christianity.
Anybody have any thoughts or suggestions? Good or bad idea? Any conversation points for before or after mass?
