COVID-19 Response

Indoor in-person gatherings are suspended in all parishes of the Episcopal Diocese of Central New York beginning November 29, 2020. Robust online worship and opportunities for learning and connection continue. Outdoor and “drive-in” gatherings, with Holy Eucharist, are permitted, as is live-streaming and recording worship from within church buildings. Essential community outreach ministries continue.

Working for racial justice

From Juneteenth to Juneteenth, the primary focus of the Diocese of Central New York is to Listen, Learn, and Respond as we confront the sin of systemic racism. Please join us in this Gospel work with new opportunities, actions, and resources each month.
