The Episcopal Church:
"The Episcopal Branch of the Jesus Movement!"
Welcome to the Saint Mary's Episcopal Church! In my short time with Saint Mary's, I'm discovering the dynamic energy and connection between our worship and service. Saint Mary's is a worshiping community that opens its arms to everyone...and we mean everyone. We are a vibrant community of Episcopalian Christian following the Jesus Movement, which constantly reminds and encourages us a Christians to: Love God + Love Neighbors = Change You Can Count On! Consider yourself welcomed to our loving parish where we see Christ in everyone who enters through our doors.
The Episcopal Diocese of Lexington.
Since the earliest days of the Christian faith, the church has been organized into geographical regions called dioceses. Our diocese is the Diocese of Lexington, which consists of 35 parishes in the eastern half of the state of Kentucky. A map of the diocese is at the bottom of this page. The diocese was formed from the older Diocese of Kentucky, which was founded in 1832 and which incorporated the whole state. In 1895 the growing population of Kentucky resulted in the diocese of Kentucky being split into two, and the Diocese of Lexington was the new name of the eastern diocese. The cathedral of the diocese is Christ Church Cathedral, in Lexington. The Diocesan Website is http://www.diolex.org/.
