WELCOME TO THE
EPISCOPAL DIOCESE
OF MARYLAND

We are committed Christians worshiping in the

Episcopal tradition and working in more than

100 faith communities throughout western, central &

southern Maryland. We are a community of love,

encountering Christ and engaging the world.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all public worship is suspended until May 31. Our churches are reopening gradually as they are comfortable and able to adhere to public health and diocesan guidelines.
