"Eucharist" as an un-articled proper noun
#42
Hmm, I'm surprised no one made this connection yet: in Anglican/Episcopal churches, Communion services are most usually called Eucharist and are advertised in their schedules as such. Catholic churches which call their services Eucharist are probably imitating the Anglicans.

However, many high-church Anglicans call their services Mass. That used to be a huge bone of contention in the Victorian period and early 20th century when high church Anglicanism wasn't so readily accepted. You can imagine the accusations of Romish popery toward the first Anglican groups that started using the word Mass.
