Resources from the Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania

Join the Bishop for an Easter service on CBS/Channel 3 at 5:30 a.m. and/or for a live-stream service from The Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral at 10 a.m. on our YouTube and Facebook pages.
Churches across the diocese are celebrating Holy Week online with innovative ideas to engage all ages. Here is a list of everything we know. Details.
Ringing church bells may not be possible, so we are asking the faithful in their own household to join in and ring a bell, beat a drum or otherwise make a joyful noise unto the Lord. Let southeastern Pennsylvania hear the sound of joy at 10 a.m. as we proclaim the hope of our Jesus Christ.
The youth are taking over next week! Visit our Facebook page to watch them lead morning prayer (8 a.m.), noonday prayer, evening prayer (6 p.m.) and compline (8 p.m.)
We have created a list of all churches with active feeding ministries and open shelters and a guide for conducting those ministries. To add your church or ask questions, please contact Canon Smyth, tsmyth@diopa.org.
Grant deadline extended. Does your congregation have a program or ministry that could use financial support from our Diocesan Budget? Have you wanted to start a new ministry or continue an old one, but just do not have the finances to do so? If so, then this grant application may be right for you. Details.
The Bishop has asked churches to connect youth with seniors living in nursing homes and retirement communities through a writing campaign. This image is a young parishioner at St. Timothy's, Roxborough. Details.
