THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH IN THE USA (ECUSA) is the American branch of the Anglican Communion. Each branch is self-governed, and ECUSA governance centers on its every three years General Convention. This year the General Convention meets for the seventy-fourth time, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in session from 28 July–9 August 2003.
