Episcopal Diocese of Washington

Engaging a changing world with
an enduring faith in Jesus Christ


The Episcopal Church and the Diocese of Washington are called to build ecumenical and interfaith partnerships wherever possible for God’s mission of reconciling and healing the whole creation. Consult these resources to learn more and participate in this work:

At its 2016 convention, the diocese passed a resolution calling upon its parishes and schools “to provide educational programs on Islam including inviting a Muslim faith leader to speak and discuss how to address prejudice and intolerance of Muslims,” and urged parishes, schools and members of the diocese to “advocate for the civil rights and safety of Muslims.”

The Rev. Carol Flett, interreligious officer in the Diocese of Washington, has prepared guidelines for initiating local interfaith relationships.
