General Convention

“Members of the Standing Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh voted this morning that Pittsburgh join with other dioceses in appealing to the Archbishop of Canterbury, the primates of the Anglican Communion and the Panel of Reference for ‘immediate alternative Primatial oversight and pastoral care.’  The Standing committee also published its intent (pending ratification by the diocesan convention this November 3-4) to ‘withdraw its consent, pursuant to Article VII of the Constitution of the Episcopal Church, to be included in the Third Province of the Episcopal Church’ envisioning the drawing together of a new Windsor-compliant Tenth Province in the Episcopal Church.   Finally, the standing committee committed itself to ‘work with and care for all the congregations of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh.’”
