Lord Jesus Christ, you stretched out your arms of love on the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace: So clothe us in your Spirit that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may bring those who do not know you to the knowledge and love of you; for the honor of your Name. Amen.

The mission of this Diocese is to support our Congregations in extending the Kingdom of God by presenting Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit through proclaiming the Gospel and making disciples. We seek to support each other in this-our common ministry- through: prayer, bible study, worship, fellowship, church planting, and youth ministry.

The Anglican Diocese of the Southwest spans Cortez, Colorado, United States to Xalapa, Veracruz, México, our northernmost and southernmost points.
We currently number four deaneries of
18 congregations (14 US; 4 México) and
8 missions or church plants  (2 US; 6 México) dispersed throughout Western Texas, New Mexico, southern Colorado, and throughout Mexico.
