Diocese of Eastern Michigan

Our diocese is one of 109 in the Episcopal Church and the Right Reverend Cate Waynick is our bishop provisional.  Click here for the the website of our Diocese.
We are a community of Christians who practice an ancient faith in a post-industrial age. Through worship, service, and pastoral care the congregations of the diocese bring the love of Christ alive, ministering both in the mainstream and at the margins. Together we seek creative, life-giving, faith-enhancing responses to the challenges of contemporary economic, social, and spiritual life.

MISSION OF THE DIOCESE

Empowered for ministry through our baptism, the Diocese of Eastern Michigan is called to love God and neighbor through our relationship with God in Christ and through covenantal relationships characterized by collaboration, mutual accountability, and capacity building. We live this mission by praying, learning, serving and growing.

HISTORY OF THE DIOCESE

Created in 1832, the Diocese of Michigan experienced the classic struggles of ministry in a area of great diversity, particularly in the 20th century between those living in the urban center of the diocese, Detroit, and the wider-reaching regions of the state.  In 1875, the western half of the Lower Peninsula became the Diocese of Western Michigan; in 1895 the Upper Peninsula became the Diocese of Northern Michigan.  The 1995 formation of Eastern Michigan was simply the latest in a series of attempts to create dioceses in Michigan that are better able to respond to their particular contexts and challenges in ministry.
With the September 1996 ordination and consecration of our first Bishop, Edwin M. Leidel, Jr., the Diocese gained an energetic and enthusiastic catalyst for ministry and prolific generator of ideas. Bishop Leidel’s entrepreneurial spirit and tireless embrace of possibilities helped give shape to a diocese that blesses experimentation and gives permission to take bold steps without fear of failure.

On January 1, 2007 Steven Todd Ousley, became the second Bishop of Eastern Michigan. As a former diocesan staff member, Bishop Ousley brought a deep appreciation for the history of the diocese and an intimate knowledge of both the people and congregations of Eastern Michigan. His tenure was focused on relationship, creativity, and social justice, to bring innovative responses to modern challenges in ministry. He resigned in June 2017 to become the Bishop for Pastoral Development of The Episcopal Church, a position on the staff of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.
bishop-cate-waynick--headshot.jpgIn October 2017, the 23rd Diocesan Convention elected the Rt. Rev. Catherine Waynick, former bishop of Indianapolis and previously a priest in the Diocese of Michigan, to serve as Bishop Provisional. Bishop Cate is the first female bishop to serve a post in an Episcopal diocese in Michigan.
Today, a spirit of hope and perseverance is alive and well. The people of the Diocese are continuing to engage more deeply the promises made in baptism and living more fully into the dream of a diocese characterized by creative collaboration between all the baptized.
