Province II, one of the nine provinces of the Episcopal Church, is the International Atlantic Province. It encompasses 13 dioceses – – all dioceses in New York and New Jersey, the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe, and 4 Caribbean dioceses (Cuba, Haiti, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands).
Province II represents all ages in diverse cultures, speaking many languages, with notable traditions who gather together in the Way of Love for mission and ministry. We are called by God to bring loving and healing ministry through significant connections and programs, such as Anti-Racism and Reconciliation, Youth Ministry, Human Trafficking, People on the Move (immigration, emigration and migration ministries) and daily kindness through housing, feeding and clothing programs. We do this in the full knowledge of Jesus Christ Our Savior: ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ (Matthew 25)
Provinces are created by the Canons of The Episcopal Church. Under those canons, the primary purposes of Province II are to facilitate collaboration among its dioceses to achieve Diocesan and Episcopal Church goals, and to enable more effective communications and regional advocacy of significant programmatic efforts. (I.9.1)
