Who We Are
One of a number of geographically defined areas within the Diocese of Massachusetts, the Cape & Islands Deanery comprises congregations from Plymouth, Buzzard's Bay and Wareham, Cape Cod, and from Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket Islands. We are part of the Episcopal Church.
Our Deanery has an Executive Council and an Assembly with delegates from each congregation. We meet at least quarterly, rotating our assemblies among our local congregations.

Congregational Development Grant we were awarded by the Diocese
to help promote collaboration and communication among the parishes
in our Deanery.
Practical Eco-StewardshipThe Cape and Islands Deanery is one of a number of
geographically defined areas within the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts
based on watersheds, reinforcing the symbolism of baptism and the interconnectedness
of our lives. Grace Church on Martha’s Vineyard has been very active in researching
and purchasing green products in their parish, and, in May 2009, introduced
the Deanery to programs they have in place. As a result of that program, the
deanery decided to explore eco-stewardship programs, including banding together
to make bulk purchases of environmentally sensitive products.
