What is Province II?
Province II is one of the nine provinces of the Episcopal Church and is also known as the International Atlantic Province. Geographically, the province includes the 6 dioceses of New York, the 2 dioceses of New Jersey and the off-shore dioceses of Haiti, the Virgin Islands and the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe.
Activities of the Province
We coordinate ministries and share resources with dioceses throughout the province. At least once every three years prior to General Convention, we meet as a Synod. This gives the deputies to convention a chance to meet together and explore the issues that will be facing convention. We invite new possibilities. We are looking for ways to re-vision and empower ministry throughout the province.
