Our Diocesan HQ is moving

Twenty-two miles south and slightly west, in Meriden ... is where we - Episcopalians in Connecticut - will have a new common space for our shared work in God's mission.  We are embracing a new future as we bid 'adieu' to Diocesan House in Hartford and find a new home at The Commons of The Episcopal Church in Connecticut, located in a former ball-bearing factory.

Please note our move dates, on the right. Winter storms affected the U.S. manufacturer of carpeting and delayed our initial move date. While we will be out of Diocesan House on April 16, the possibility of a slight further delay in carpets would mean pushing desk and file setup further into Easter Week.

We ask for your patience during this transition, and for your prayers for the movers and all others involved. Check for updates on diocesan social media and notices on the diocesan website.

The email servers will be briefly interrupted after hours, possibly as early as April 13, as they're physically moved. This shouldn't affect service during the week and we'll post notices of any known outages.

The phones will be disconnected at Diocesan House on April 15 and new service started April 17. If there is an emergency during these two days please contact one of your bishops on their cell phones. 

Here is the new address and contact info.

The Commons
Episcopal Church in Connecticut
290 Pratt Street
Meriden CT 06450
Local phone: 203-639-3501

Email addresses and phone extensions will remain the same in Meriden, for now.  

It is a time of tremendous hope in the midst of other huge changes. We pray that this move is a faithful response, by all of us, to what God is doing with us and among us, here in Connecticut.
