A bit about ECMN

If you’re visiting us for the first time, you’ve found us in an exciting time of change, hope, and opportunity. Over 150-plus years, our Episcopal community in Minnesota has grown, expanded, and redefined what it means to join God’s mission in the world.

The first way you might notice our work within God’s mission is through our connections throughout the world.

The Episcopal Church in Minnesota is a ‘diocese’ of The Episcopal Church, which is a community of 2.5 million worshipers in about 120 dioceses across the United States and abroad.

The Episcopal Church is part of the larger Anglican Communion, which is a worldwide community of more than 77 million who intentionally maintain community and commonality in prayer and worship in more than 500 dioceses in 164 countries.

Our very first Bishop, Henry Benjamin Whipple, worked and served with the Native American community. While others were persecuting them, he was ordaining them. The Episcopal Church in Minnesota continues that legacy.

The Episcopal Church in Minnesota maintains one of the largest Departments of Indian Work in the entire Episcopal Church, with faith communities on nearly every Reservation in Minnesota. Additionally, we support faith communities welcoming the newest Minnesotans by worshiping in several languages including Hmong and Spanish.
