Federation of Reformed Parishes of the Canton of Obwalden

In Obwalden, the churches are not organized at the cantonal level as regional churches, but as a Catholic and Reformed federation of parishes. This federation represents both of the parishes in Obwalden vis-à-vis the cantonal authorities, the Roman Catholic Church, the Reformed churches of central Switzerland and the Reformed churches throughout the rest of Switzerland.
