Welcome to the Episcopal Church in Western Oregon!

We are a unique expression of the Jesus Movement, as it is found in the life and work of the Episcopal Church in western Oregon. Our churches throughout the region gather in the love of God to ground our lives in worship while connecting ourselves to the wider church and world.

Whether you are a first-time explorer of this way of faith or a lifelong Episcopalian, I trust you will find a home in this fellowship of love and prayer. This is a place where all are welcome and all may find God in Jesus Christ.

The Rt. Rev. Diana Akiyama
Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon
