The Diocese (You're here.)

The Episcopal Church in Vermont consists of 46 congregations who share in the mission to pray the prayer of Christ, to learn the mind of Christ, and to do the deeds of Christ through ministries of Formation, Liberation, Communication, Connection, and Celebration.

 

The Local Church (Go to our Locations page)

Each congregation is equipped through worship, study and fellowship, to go into the world of our daily life to live and participate in God’s reconciling mission.

 

The Individual (Redirect to this website)

Episcopalians are called to be agents of reconciliation, demonstrating that there is a God who loves us, a God who will not let us go, and that love can set us all free.
