Our Story

Southwest Michigan Episcopal Covenant    

​The parishes of Trinity Episcopal Church, Niles; St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Dowagiac; and St. Paul's Episcopal Church, St. Joseph, MI, want to welcome you. As our parish numbers have decreased over the years, we found that our spirit and drive to make a difference in our communities could thrive and grow by joining our resources yet maintaining our unique parish communities. We welcome you to select the church and service times best suited to your location and schedule. Try one, try them all. Our goal is to work toward closer community relationships together. Please join us. We welcome all persons who are seeking to live with integrity, love, and dignity on the basis of our baptismal covenant in which we promise to serve Christ in all persons and to respect the dignity of every human being.
