INTEGRITY'S WORK IN ANAHEIM CONTINUES TO PAY OFF

FROM MATT HAINES, Integrity USA's Province VIII Coordinator

Diocese of Oregon elects Bishop, approves Same-Gender blessings

Integrity is happy to announce that the Diocese of Oregon has elected the Reverend Michael Joseph Hanley, on the second ballot, to become the 10th Bishop of Oregon. The bishop-elect is currently the rector of St. Christopher Episcopal Church in Roseville, Minnesota, an Integrity Proud Parish partner [P3].

We also celebrate the passage of a resolution, inspired by 2009 General Convention Resolution D025, humbly requesting that the bishop-elect offer pastoral generosity to clergy wishing to liturgically bless same-gender relationships in the Diocese of Oregon.
