What Is A Bishops District?

A bishop is an ordained or consecrated member of the Christian clergy who is generally entrusted with a position of authority and oversight. A bishop's district is where the bishop conducts or precides over the churches under his or her responsibility. Within the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox Churches, in the Assyrian Church of the East, in the Independent Catholic Churches, and in the Anglican churches, bishops claim Apostolic succession, a direct historical lineage dating back to the original Twelve Apostles.
