Sunday, as requested by Archbishop Ron Cutler, I read his Pastoral Letter Regarding
Same Sex Marriage at both of our morning services (the
letter is posted on the bulletin board and is available on our
parish website). In response to this pastoral letter, at our
Parish Council meeting last Wednesday night we passed a
motion, unanimously, indicating that we would like to offer
the rite and sacrament of marriage to same sex couples in our
parish. As some will know, we have consulted with parishioners
about this at various points over the past 8 years, and have
offered opportunities for conversation and study about human
sexuality and marriage. We have seen increasing support for
same sex marriage over the years in our parish and agreed that
we would like to begin to offer that option to couples. If you
have any questions about this, or would like to talk about it,
please contact one of the wardens or the Rector or any member
of Parish Council.
Sandra will be in the church office Weds., 12:30-2pm and
Thurs., 9:30-11:30. She will be off Monday and Saturday.
