I think you may have made a typo since "Episcopalians" are not known for
those activities.

Also there is a subtle distinction that the persons you describe could
be classified as Charismatic and some but not all Pentecostals are
Charismatic however there are persons who would call themselves
Pentecostal but do not exhibit the Charismatic behavior. However I think
we all get the general point you are making.
