About Diocese of Washington

The Diocese of Washington comprises 38,000 people in 86 congregations, and the heart of our life and ministry is found in those congregations, as well as in our Episcopal schools, service ministries, and most importantly, in the lives of our members. We’re learning together what it means to follow Jesus and to be God's church.

While our name is the Episcopal Diocese of Washington,  our congregations, schools and other ministries are located in four Maryland counties--Montgomery, Prince George's, Charles and St. Mary’s--as  well as the District of Columbia. 

Our mission, as a diocese, is to draw people to Jesus and embody his love for the world by equipping faith communities, promoting spiritual growth, and striving for justice.
