Diocesan Convention Approves ‘Realignment’

October 4, 2008. Meeting at St. Martin’s, Monroeville, the annual convention of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh approved “realignment” today. The convention adopted constitutional and canonical changes intended to remove the diocese from The Episcopal Church and to attach it to the Anglican Church of the Southern Cone.

Progressive Episcopalians of Pittsburgh believes that “realignment” is fundamentally impossible. The Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh remains in The Episcopal Church, though many of its members and leaders now claim to have left it and are no longer qualified to hold office in the diocese.

PEP has issued a press release, which can be read here.
