I have spent some time around Anglicans, so I can say that I agree with you fully. Much to the chagrin of my Catholic and Orthodox friends and family alike, I used to attend Anglo-Catholic liturgies to observe because I liked their liturgical style and English history, and time and time again a priest or an acolyte or a deacon would come up to me and ask if I'd like communion. It almost got a little bit unnerving (which is kind of mean to say, I suppose); everyone would say things along the line of "all our welcome, join us, join us!" One time I saw a very sweet, elderly acolyte extinguishing candles in the cathedral after liturgy, and I asked her for help. She asked me to go to the altar and get the chalice and it's covering for her. I told her that that wouldn't be right, since I'm not Anglican. She just thought that was the funniest thing ever and she asked why on Earth should any baptised Christian not be allowed to commune there and get the chalice afterwards? I went and got the chalice with its silken communion cloth and put it in the sacristy, but I felt wrong afterwards. That was the last time I tried to be a neutral observer. I lost my interest in High Church Anglicanism, especially after I read yesterday that the Church of England might make vestments during liturgy optional.Peter J said:I know it might seem like there is such a "PR campaign"; but if you spend time around e.g. Anglicans I believe you will find much the same thing. That is to say, their church's position is that they may receive in Catholic or Orthodox churches, so many of them expect Catholic or Orthodox priests to give them communion.KostaC said:I don't know if this is the right place to ask it, but is there like a PR campaign going on in Catholic churches across the United States that states that Catholics are allowed to receive at Orthodox Churches and vice-versa?
