The Diocese of Vermont includes 46 congregations and more than 5,000 Episcopalians across the Green Mountain state. Led by Bishop Shannon MacVean-Brown, we draw our inspiration from the story of the apostle Peter, who stepped out of his boat and followed Jesus into the midst of a storm. Together we are putting our trust in God and finding new ways to serve, worship, and care for creation. Join us.
