Location of the Diocese of Oregon

The Episcopal Diocese of Oregon is a diocese of The Episcopal Church which consists of the western portion of the State of Oregon bordered by the Pacific Ocean, the Columbia River, the Cascade Range and the Oregon-California border. Major cities in the diocese are Portland, Salem, Eugene and Medford. The diocese is a part of Province VIII of the Episcopal Church.

Following the retirement of the Rt. Rev. Johncy Itty on December 31, 2008, ecclesiastical authority in the diocese is exercised by the Diocesan Standing Committee, while episcopal functions (including ordination and confirmation) are conducted by the Rt. Rev. Sanford "Sandy" Hampton, who was appointed by the diocese as its assisting bishop pending the election and seating of a new bishop.

During the Diocese's Annual Convention on November 20, 2009, the Rev. Dr. Michael Joseph Hanley was elected to be the 10th bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Oregon, pending the required consents. Hanley, 54, is presently rector of St. Christopher's Episcopal Church in Roseville, Minnesota. His episcopal ordination and consecration is scheduled for April 10, 2010.

The seat of the diocese is Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, Portland, Oregon.
