Get to Know the Diocese of Missouri
The Episcopal Diocese of Missouri is made up of 41 parishes in urban, suburban, small town, and rural areas. Although we are all Episcopalians, each parish has its own personality and offers a unique worship and membership experience.
We're on a mission to help you get to know every parish in this diocese! As Bishop Deon Johnson travels the region on his official visits, we'll follow up by featuring each parish in our diocesan communications. Watch for parish profiles and pictures to be posted here on the website each week. We'll also be posting photos and interesting facts about our featured parish on our Facebook and Instagram pages.
We hope these features will help you appreciate the diversity, creativity, and wonderful missional work happening in our diocese. We also hope you'll be inspired to go visit these communities of faith and experience God throughout the Diocese of Missouri for yourself!
