Welcome to the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon!

We are a unique expression of the Jesus Movement, as it is found in the life and work of the Episcopal Church in western Oregon. Our churches throughout the region gather in the love of God to ground our lives in worship while connecting ourselves to the wider church and world.

Whether you are a first-time explorer of this way of faith or a lifelong Episcopalian, I trust you will find a home in this fellowship of love and prayer. This is a place where all are welcome and all may find God in Jesus Christ.

“Do not fear, for I am with you,

    do not be afraid, for I am your God;

I will strengthen you, I will help you,

    I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.” Isaiah 41:10


Spirit of the living God, come among us and guide us as we seek to know your will for us in the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon.
 May we listen deeply to your voice as we meet and discern with those who have stepped up to identify themselves and their gifts in leadership among us.  May we find in all the voices that we hear, that still small voice leading us to deeper understanding of your will in each of our lives and providing us with the power to carry that out in your Church and your World.  Amen.

Everything you need to know about the nominees, election, and ordination of our next bishop is on the 11th Bishop of Oregon Search and Transition Committee website.
