The Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan is part of the wider Episcopal Church and subject to national Canons and processes. Our local diocesan leadership includes a bishop and elected governing boards and commissions. 

Constitution and Canons

Our Constitution and Canons are the governing documents of our diocese. They are the set of rules or laws by which we organize ourselves and conduct the business of the church. This version of our Canons was updated with the 26th Diocesan Convention, in 2021. 


Starting in 2023, the Dioceses of Eastern and Western Michigan were organized into three regional “collaboratives” for continued relationship, collaboration, and programming.
