International Atlantic Province
A Note from Province II's President and Vice President
We hope everyone’s travel home was smooth and uneventful after our gathering in Albany. We left with a deep sense of God’s grace and the power of shared ministry; our time together was inspirational! ... Most of all let us be God’s people of action and prayer, with open hearts to ways we might minister more effectively as a Province.

Blessings of peace for the journey, (read the whole note here >)

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.
