Welcome to the Episcopal Diocese of Kansas
The Episcopal Church is home to about 12,000 people in 46 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 46 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 is an important one in the life of Episcopalians. It is the six weeks that lead up to Easter, the church's greatest celebration.
Lent offers the opportunity to examine our lives and find habits or behaviors that need changing in order to place us closer to God.
We do this through spending more time praying and reading the Bible, by taking on some good practices that aren't usually part of our lives, and by giving up things that keep us from a right relationship with God.
Lent begins on Ash Wednesday (March 5), when worshippers receive a smudge of ashes on our foreheads to remind us of our mortality. Lent continues through the events of Holy Week, which begins with Palm Sunday on April 13 and ends on Easter Eve on April 19.
Churches across the diocese offer special services, observance and activities during Lent to help you on your journey. You can find them on the website of a church near you. A list is >>HERE.
May you have a blessed Lent.
Kansas Episcopal bishops issue joint statement on proposed legislation
Bishop Dean Wolfe of the Diocese of Kansas and Bishop Michael Milliken of the Diocese of Western Kansas on Feb. 14 issued a joint statement opposing House Bill 2453, which would allow people for religious reasons to refuse service to gay and lesbian couples.
In their statement the bishops write, "House Bill 2453, which is currently before the Kansas Senate, proposes to legalize discrimination against gay and lesbian couples, attributing the excuse for such discrimination as 'religious freedom.' In truth, this bill is not about religious freedom but is aimed at creating state-authorized bias and inequality."
They further note, "Our biblically based faith calls us to live out the command of Jesus Christ to love one another. You cannot love your fellow Kansans and deny them the rights that belong to everyone else."
The full text of their statement, which was sent to all members of the Kansas Senate, is available >>HERE.
