About Anglicanism

The Church of the Redeemer is a parish of the Episcopal Church, which is the American branch of the worldwide Anglican Communion.

Within the Episcopal Church there are local jurisdictions, called dioceses. The Church of the Redeemer is a part of the Diocese of Massachusetts, which includes all Episcopal churches in Eastern Massachusetts.

Our Diocese

Diocesan Logo Our diocese has two Bishops who oversee the spiritual and financial welfare of our community. They provide support and training to our priests and laity, run mission programs and college chaplaincies, and officiate at confirmation services. Almost every year, one of the Bishops visits our parish for a Sunday service. There are 185 parishes and nearly 68,000 Episcopalians in the Diocese of Massachusetts alone. For more information on our diocese, click here.
