Vestry statement from Redeemer, Squirrel Hill (Diocese of Pittsburgh)

(Note: This was just sent to me today)

August 8, 2008

Dear Bishop Duncan,

At the August 3 vestry meeting of the Church of the Redeemer, Squirrel Hill, the vestry, wardens and rector unanimously reaffirmed the statement originally endorsed unanimously by all parishioners attending our January 25, 2004 annual parish meeting.

"We, the members of the Church of the Redeemer, hold diverse views on many subjects. However, we also hold each other in love as brothers and sisters in Christ despite these differences. We are committed to staying in the Episcopal Church of the United States of America and worshipping at the Lord's Table together."

In implementation of this statement on August 3, 2008, the vestry unanimously passed this resolution:
Resolved that the Church of the Redeemer will continue to be in union with The Episcopal Church and General Convention no matter what resolutions or amendments are purported to have passed at the 2008 annual diocesan convention, and that we will work to ensure the continuation of the Episcopal Diocese in Pittsburgh in union with the General Convention of The Episcopal Church.


The Rector, Vestry and Wardens of the Church of Redeemer, Squirrel Hill
