John Rule will provide an update on same sex marriage in The Episcopal Church at 9:00 am in Powell Hall.

At the General Convention of The Episcopal Church last summer, the Convention passed Resolution B012, entitled “Marriage Rites for the Whole Church.” The Resolution approved for continued trial use marriage liturgies appropriate for same sex couples, and provided in part that “under the canonical direction of the Rector or Member of the Clergy in charge and where permitted to do so by civil law, provision will be made for all couples [including same sex couples] desiring to use these marriage liturgies in their local congregation or worshipping community.”
