Non-realigning Episcopalians Recognized as
Episcopal Diocese of Episcopal Church

 

October 10, 2008. The realignment vote on October 4 left the Standing Committee, the ecclesiastical authority of the diocese in the absence of a bishop, with a single member, the Rev. James Simons, who intended to stay in The Episcopal Church.

When he determined on October 8 that this was the case, Simons appointed the Rev. Jeff Murph and Ms. Mary Roehrich to the Standing Committee, and he informed the Presiding Bishop of the developments in Pittsburgh.

On October 9, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori acknowledged the three-member Standing Committee as the ecclesiastical authority of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh of The Episcopal Church.
