Deaneries of the Episcopal Diocese of Louisiana

The Episcopal Church welcomes you! We invite you to come worship at one of the 48 congregations in our diocese. 

Baton Rouge Deanery

The Baton Rouge Deanery is the largest deanery of the Diocese, containing seventeen congregations in seven parishes including the most populated parish in Louisiana, East Baton Rouge Parish. We are located in cities, town and even very small towns. Our deanery contains St Alban’s Chapel at LSU, St. James’ Place Retirement Community and the diocese’s newest congregation, the Church of the Transfiguration, at the Louisiana State Penitentiary (otherwise known as “Angola”).

Northshore Deanery

The Northshore Deanery comprises the civil parishes of St. Tammany, Washington, and Tangipahoa above the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. Historically an agricultural region, in the last few decades we have seen the highest population growth in the state. Four of the congregations have greatly benefited from this growth. The other churches, regrettably, have decreased in numbers. Covington is home to Christwood Retirement Community.

Southwest Deanery

The Southwest Deanery consists of five historic congregations, most dating from the middle of the nineteenth century in churches which are nearly as old. We are spread across small cities, towns and communities along the bayous of Cajun Louisiana. Unfortunately, our congregations were seriously impacted by Hurricane Ida and one, St. Andrew’s, which is located on Bayou DuLarge virtually on the Gulf of Mexico, was severely damaged. We are small but faithful. It is difficult to know what good things the Lord might bring about for the Southwest Deanery over the next years, but we are listening.
