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.

Deanery Congregational Development Grant We are grateful for the 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.
