Open Positions Around the Diocese
If you've viewed the home page on our diocesan website recently, you may have noticed this map beneath the "Find a Church" header. This is the Episcopal Asset Map.

The Asset Map is now used by The Episcopal Church, Episcopal Relief & Development, and the Diocese of East Carolina. Each parish in our diocese has page of its own on the Asset Map. If you have not yet taken the time to check out the Asset Map or your parish's page, you can do so here.

If you notice that service times, contact information, photos, or any other content is out of date, there's an easy way to suggest changes. Click on the text that says, "update this place," make any recommended changes, and once you submit them, Lindsey Harts will review them and approve changes accordingly.
Contact Lindsey Harts if you have any additional questions.
