Episcopal Diocese of Washington

Engaging a changing world with
an enduring faith in Jesus Christ

Christian Formation

Our Christian faith formation in The Episcopal Church is a lifelong journey with Christ, in Christ, and to Christ. The Episcopal Church believes in the Charter for Lifelong Christian Formation, which supports a continued growth in the knowledge, service and love of God as followers of Christ and is informed by Scripture, Tradition and Reason. 

The diocese offers resources for choosing a curriculum, studying the Bible, learning about Millennials, Confirmation, and helping leaders and individuals respond to the questions and challenges that arise in our lives. 

Children, Youth, and Families

The Children, Youth & Family Ministry supports our parishes in their mission to help youth and families to grow spiritually. At the diocesan level, we offer youth and their families the opportunity to have a transforming encounter with Jesus Christ so that they can grow in their relationship with him and share Jesus’ love in their everyday lives.

Young Adults

The diocesan Young Adult Ministry supports local congregations and campus ministries in nurturing the spiritual lives of adults in their twenties and thirties and reaching out to those not yet engaged.


The Adult Ministry supports the life-stages of adults for continuous spiritual growth.
