As a matter of fact they do not worship the Eucharist. Just refer my experience: they had no note that non Anglicans should not participate in their Eucharistic Communion, only that those outside of the Community should not participate in the Blessing. I do not know the exact why, but experienced the fact.

I never doubted that the Anglicans are outside the Church, or stated that they share the Church in the fullness of the sacraments. The ordinations and consequently their Eucharist are not valid. However we shall approach and address them as with high probability Christ would do, and as the Church does: They are our separated brethren.

Quote:24. Now that we have briefly set out the conditions for ecumenical action and the principles by which it is to be directed, we look with confidence to the future. This Sacred Council exhorts the faithful to refrain from superficiality and imprudent zeal, which can hinder real progress toward unity. Their ecumenical action must be fully and sincerely Catholic, that is to say, faithful to the truth which we have received from the apostles and Fathers of the Church, in harmony with the faith which the Catholic Church has always professed, and at the same time directed toward that fullness to which Our Lord wills His Body to grow in the course of time.

It is the urgent wish of this Holy Council that the measures undertaken by the sons of the Catholic Church should develop in conjunction with those of our separated brethren so that no obstacle be put in the ways of divine Providence and no preconceived judgments impair the future inspirations of the Holy Spirit. The Council moreover professes its awareness that human powers and capacities cannot achieve this holy objective-the reconciling of all Christians in the unity of the one and only Church of Christ. It is because of this that the Council rests all its hope on the prayer of Christ for the Church, on our Father's love for us, and on the power of the Holy Spirit. "And hope does not disappoint, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us

Quote:13 ... Among those in which Catholic traditions and institutions in part continue to exist, the Anglican Communion occupies a special place.

This is not infallibly but still binding decree., and as a matter of fact more 'Magisterial' than Leo XIII's  Encyclical (with the acceptance that it is binding too) The fact that the Anglicans/Episcopalians are not sacramental Church (those priest who united are ordained w/o condition), should not determine our relationship toward us, and this is the decree of the Unitatis Redigrentatio.
