History

In its current form, the Diocese of the Resurrection is the result of a merger of two dioceses whose founding dates to the beginning of the ACC--the Diocese of the Resurrection and the Diocese of New England. 

A joint synod of the former Diocese of the Resurrection and the Missionary Diocese of New England was held in May 2012 where a resolution was passed to merge into a new Diocese of the Resurrection.

The Right Reverend Rocco A. Florenza, who had previously served as Episcopal Visitor to both dioceses, was elected as the first Bishop Ordinary of the new Diocese of the Resurrection.
