A lot of Catholics join TEC. I was a Catholic who did so, as was my parish priest. You would not have to be reconfirmed. At most, you would be allowed to be formally "recieved" into TEC when the Bishop came to your parish at some point during the year if you would like to be.

About half of our large church are former Roman Catholics. My GUESS is that this is a very large part of new membership in Episcopal and Anglican churches in many parts of the US.

Our family came from the Catholic to the TEC 2 1/2 years ago.

I was wondering what the difference is between a "high church" and a "low church",and whether or not some episcopal churches still offer private confession?

The Low church is more evangelical than liturgical and they also let women be ordained. As for the High Church, it varies. The High Churches commonly tend to disagree with women ordination. Some High Anglican Churches believe in the transubstantiation. Many of them also have private confession available. Some High Churches also honor Mary and pray to her and the saints. I'm Catholic, but I occasionally attend the local High Anglican church to pray along during their rosary hour. In a lot of ways, it's like Catholic-lite.

I'm also a former Catholic who joined the Anglican Church. I go to a somewhat "high" church but there is no veneration of Mary or private confession in general. A church that makes those things part of everyday importance would have to be very high, I think, as it's not very common and not of great importance to most Anglicans (at least around here).

Not always. In fact, the most "Low church/evangelical" diocese I know of on the planet (Sydney) does not, nor does the REC/FCofE either.

Yes, normally any baptized Christian who would receive in his own church would be allowed to.

Mot priests will do private confession - they should - but often you will have to ask and make an appointment. It is more common in high churches. A few very Romish ones even have confessional booths.

There are many Vatican Catholics who convert to the Anglican Communion. I do not know how exactly "common" it is, although my mother was an extremely nominal Roman Catholic who converted officially last Advent and I know of many Episcopalians and other Anglicans, both in the Communion and of the Continuing Churches, who came from the Vatican Catholic Church.

As for Reconfirmation, that would not be necessary. We accept the validity and licity of all the sacraments of the Vatican Catholic Church. You need only be given a Rite of Reception whenever the Diocesan Bishop or an assisting or suffragen bishop were to given an official visit.

They relate to one's churchship; how they prefer the liturgy. High churches such as myself enjoy a more traditional and elaborate liturgy, with smells, bells, and all the options. Low churches tend to have a more basic but still meaningful and even beautiful liturgy, which just the required parts. There is also the broad church, which is basically a meeting in the middle of the two extremes (and which most parishes and missions tend to be).

Private confession is considered at the option of the individual, and a priest or bishop is, if he or she is worth his or her salt, happy to hear the private confessions of a Christian. We consider it a sacrament, and the priest or bishop is under canon law to be absolutely confidential about whatever is said.

All people who have been 1) given the Sacrament of Holy Baptist in 2) Trinitarian formula and 3) in Nicene Trinitarian dogma, 4) and are Nicene Christians are welcome to come forth to the altar and receive the Body and Blood.
