Diocese of Southern Ohio
The Diocese of Southern Ohio is home to more than 25,000 Episcopalians. Our communities of faith can be found in Cincinnati, Columbus, and Dayton, and in many farm towns and county seats across 40 counties in the southern half of the state.
Southern Ohio has long been recognized for innovation and leadership throughout the Episcopal Church, and many initiatives that have carried the church through difficult times, such as Forward Movement and Episcopal Relief and Development, were born through the faithful work of the people of this diocese.
This spirit of mission and inclusion carries on today through the words of our mission statement, which guide the mission and ministry of the diocese: As Episcopalians in the Diocese of Southern Ohio, we commit ourselves to know the common story, proclaim our common faith, pray our common prayer, drink the common cup, serve the common good. In the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is our common ministry.
