We work closely with the Bishops and staff of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. Through this relationship we support programs and new initiatives at the Diocesan level that are addressing and supporting issues facing the urban poor.
Life Together: The DIOMASS Intern Program
Life Together seeks to cultivate the next generation of prayerful, prophetic, and impactful leaders for the church and the world, through an intensive 10-month experience that includes: justice-based work in local communities; spiritual formation and leadership development; and intentional community living in locations throughout Eastern Massachusetts. We are committed to renewing the Church as a school of love, and our work equips fellows with contemplative, communal and prophetic practices that lead to personal and community transformation.

Barbara C. Harris Camp & Conference Center
For over 10 years, ECM has supported the Barbara C. Harris Camp and Conference Center by giving an annual grant to provide scholarships for low-income urban youth to attend summer camp sessions. BCH’s program builds upon the opportunities presented by the wonder of God’s creation found in nature and the camper’s distance from the distractions of everyday life. Based on a “small group approach”, BCH is a place where all campers feel accepted, loved and are able to develop authentic friendships. Click here to learn more.
Leadership Development Initiative
The Leadership Development Initiative equips leaders for an awakened and active Church by coaching parish-based teams from the Diocese of Massachusetts and supporting individuals who are pursuing justice. We train participants in community organizing and contemplative practices so they can follow Jesus in the transformation to a more just world. Click here to learn more.
