We are a constituent member of the worldwide Anglican Communion and the Episcopal Church in the United States.
Our 79 parishes and missions total some 28,000 members with 260 baptisms celebrated each year sharing in an exciting pilgrimage of ministry. On any given Sunday, about 11,000 people worship in Episcopal churches in Southwest Florida.
We extend along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, with our northernmost congregation in Brooksville and our most southern on Marco Island. We include the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota and Fort Myers. Our easternmost congregations are in Plant City, Arcadia and LaBelle.
As a diocesan community, we seek to live out Jesus' Great Commission that we should be in the world to make disciples of all people ministering God's redemptive gifts of love and grace. "Make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded." Matthew 28:19-20a.
We encourage you to worship with us and share with others the joy we have found in serving our Lord and the world He came to save. May God bless you.
