DIOCESE

The Episcopal Church in Maryland is as old as the first English settlements on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay during the 1630s. The “Protestant Episcopal Church” created in 1780 by Maryland-based Anglicans, is now a vibrant community of congregations and individuals in covenant with God and one another. Our diocese:

  • Spans across 10 counties in western, central and southern Maryland
  • Includes more than 100 congregations and 23 schools
  • Supports more than 100 active ministries through the Bishops Appeal
  • Actively collaborates with ecumenical partners advocating for Gospel justice
    hosts groups and events at our diocesan center and Claggett Center
