The Anglican church was formed when one of the English kings wanted to divorce, since religion and government were so intertwined this was a big problem. So he formed a new church. As I understand it they are light on the praying to saints, light on the praying to or through Mary. The Episcopal church was the American branch of the Anglican church. However, the Episcopalian church has become much more liberal and is now ordaining women and openly gay men and women. So several churches here have gone back under the Anglican church, which as far as I know has not started any of the more liberal practices. The Catholic church in an effort to attract those who want an even more conservative belief system have made it easy for Anglicans and Episcopalians to convert.
