DOSA follows an episcopal structure of deacons, priests and bishops. The episcopate is the office of the Presiding Bishop and is the head and sign of the unity of the mission, people and leadership of DOSA. The Bishop does not serve with unilateral jurisdictional or administrative authority, but as the voice and representative of the Diocese and the convener and moderator for the Diocese. Various Councils and Commissions exist to advise, lead and administrate the vision of the Diocese of St. Anthony.
