Diocese of Oklahoma
Oklahoma City, Okla.
The Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma covers the entire state, nearly 70,000 square miles spanning numerous geographic landscapes. It includes approximately 25,000 Episcopalians, 70 congregations, and 150 resident clergy. We are divided into six regions and support five Episcopal schools, two residential communities for mature adults, and a thriving camp and conference center, St. Crispin’s.
The Diocese of Oklahoma is a member of Province VII, consisting of 12 other dioceses in close proximity. Out of all the dioceses in the Episcopal Church, the Diocese of Oklahoma has consistently seen growth in the past several years. The State of the Church report shows that our diocese is growing at a rate of over four percent.
In April 2014, our diocese held the Reclaiming the Gospel of Peace Conference, an Episcopal national gathering to challenge the epidemic of violence. Bishops, clergy, and laity from throughout the Episcopal Church explored the realities of violence and rededicated themselves to the gospel of peace.
Our current capital campaign for St. Crispin’s Camp and Conference Center will help us provide a remodel with significant enhancements to our facilities. These enhancements will allow us to more effectively serve people of all faiths who come to St. Crispin’s for rest, relaxation, and renewal.
