The Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe is a jurisdiction of the Episcopal Church in the United States of America which includes all its congregations in continental Europe. Along with dioceses in New York, New Jersey, Guadeloupe (West Indies), and the Virgin Islands it belongs to Province II of the Episcopal Church. The Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church has jurisdiction over the Convocation but oversight is delegated to a bishop in charge, currently the Right Reverend Pierre W. Whalon.
