  • Special Announcement

    On July 1, 2015, the 78th General Convention of The Episcopal Church passed legislation bringing marriage equality to all Episcopalians. This legislation was passed by overwhelming majorities in both the House of Bishops and the House of Deputies, and comes on the heels of the June 26th U.S. Supreme Court ruling that same-sex marriage is a constitutional right.

  • Special Message from the Bishop

    Dear Friends in Christ: Grace and peace to you. When the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals acts in response to the Supreme Court of the United States’ decision today, same-gender marriages will once again be legally possible in California. Our state would then resume its position with a growing number of states that extend the right of marriage to all their citizens.
