The diocese is part of The Episcopal Church which is a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion. It works in concert with many partners in its ministry. Among them are:
EDUCATION FOR MINISTRY,
Education for Ministry, (EfM) is a unique four year distance learning certificate program in theological education based upon small group study and practice. Since its founding in 1975 this international program has assisted more than 80,000 participants in discovering and nurturing their call to Christian service.
EPISCOPAL CHURCH WOMEN
The Episcopal Church Women (ECW) was first recognized as an independent group in 1985. ECW evolved from the Women’s Auxiliary Missionary Society, whose first national Triennial meeting was held in 1874. Much of the early work involved fundraising in support of female missionaries, eventually leading to the formation of the United Thank Offering. The United Thank Offering (UTO) continues to be a significant mission supported by ECW to this day.
The diocese supports the students, staff and faculty of the schools associated with it through ministries of prayer and presence. Our mission is to proclaim the goodness and mercy of God, the justice of God and the peace of Christ in these educational communities.
PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CATHEDRAL FOUNDATION
The Protestant Episcopal Cathedral Foundation (PECF) was chartered by Congress over 100 years ago to promote the causes of religion, education, and charity. President Benjamin Harrison signed the charter on January 6, 1893, and on September 29, 1907, the first stone of the Cathedral was placed in a beautiful, park-like setting in northwest Washington, D.C. Today, the Foundation and its institutions occupy fifty-nine pastoral acres known as the Close, a magnificent setting enjoyed by students, worshipers, visitors, and residents of surrounding neighborhoods.
We are a dual language (English and Spanish) early childhood education center located in the Mount Pleasant neighborhood of Washington, DC. We serve almost 250 children and families each year. Our program is accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). Over seventy working community partnerships offer considerable resources and referrals to our families

St. BARNABAS’ OF THE DEAF
The Diocese of Washington comprises 38,000 people in 86 congregations, and the heart of our life and ministry is found in those congregations, as well as in our Episcopal schools, service ministries, and most importantly, in the lives of our members. We’re learning together what it means to follow Jesus and to be God’s church.
WASHINGTON NATIONAL CATHEDRAL
Washington National Cathedral is widely known as an architectural landmark and the setting of presidential funerals and post-inauguration prayer services. What is less well known is that the cathedral is officially known as the Cathedral Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul and is the cathedral church of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington.
The Brotherhood of St. Andrew has been bringing men and youth to Jesus Christ since 1883. Today, the Brotherhood is a worldwide ministry with chapters that bring men together for support, service projects and fellowship. Brothers follow three disciplines: prayer, study and service.
