List of Original Dioceses of ECUSA

The Episcopal Church in the United States of America currently has over 100 dioceses. This was not always the case, however. When the church was originally founded, in the 1780s, it had only nine. These were:

  1. Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts
  2. Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut
  3. Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania
  4. Episcopal Diocese of Virginia
  5. Episcopal Diocese of New York
  6. Episcopal Diocese of Maryland
  7. Episcopal Diocese of New Jersey
  8. Episcopal Diocese of Delaware
  9. Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina

They are represented by the nine white crosses arranged in a St. Andrew's Cross on a blue field on the Church arms and flag.
