Welcome to the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas
The Episcopal Church is home to about 11,000 people in 44 congregations in cities and towns across eastern Kansas. Our congregations make up our diocese, and our diocese is part of the wider Episcopal Church, which in turn is part of a larger, global community of Christians in the Anglican Communion.
In the Episcopal Church there is room for your questions about God, faith and the church. There’s a place for you here.
You are welcome to worship at any of the 44 congregations of the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas. Inside the doors of our churches -- some large, some small -- you will find services that offer beauty, warmth and a sense of community.
You can find an Episcopal church near you in eastern Kansas by using the "Find a Congregation" drop-down menu at left, or to see a list of cities where there is an Episcopal church, please click >>HERE.

The season of Lent
Lent begins on Feb. 10 with Ash Wednesday, a day when Christians of many denominations around the world acknowledge their dependence upon God's grace in the face of their own mortality. They often receive the sign of the cross marked on their forehead in ashes (made from burning the palms from last year's Palm Sunday observance), and hence the name of Ash Wednesday.
Lent lasts for 40 days, not including Sundays, and culminates with the joyous festival of Easter.
For centuries Lent has been a time for Christians to devote extra time to prayer, to examine their lives, to engage in fasting and other acts of self-denial, and to offer service to others.
The point of Lent is to help us focus more on God and less on ourselves. For some people, giving up a pleasurable food or activity serves as a reminder. For some, adopting special spiritual devotions does the same thing. The point always is to find ways to connect more closely with God.
Many churches have special Lenten services and times of prayer and fellowship. We invite you find an Episcopal church near you and to hear what God may be saying to you during these 40 days. You can find a church by clicking on the drop-down menu at the left, or by clicking >>HERE.
