FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
INTEGRITY HOSTS 40TH ANNIVERSARY INAUGURAL EUCHARIST WITH BISHOP MICHAEL CURRY
This Anniversary Eucharist also serves as a kick-off to our justice work throughout the three dioceses of North Carolina, made possible by a generous grant from the Evelyn and Walter Hass, Jr. Fund.
The Eucharist will be followed by a wine and hors d'oeuvres reception, hosted by the Integrity Board of Directors. LGBTQ families, allies, the media, and the questioning are invited to join in the celebration so that all may share their passion for justice and honor the work towards making NC a safe and welcoming home for all.
This event touches off the celebration of the organization's four decades of advocacy, outreach and fellowship. It will continue through the following year and across the church, with activities in chapters, at partner congregations, and our on-line presence. Integrity USA has been inspiring and equipping the Episcopal Church to proclaim and embody God's love for LGBTQ people and their families and allies since 1974.
Our anniversary year culminates with a joyous Eucharist at the 78th General Convention in Salt Lake City in June, at which the Rt. Rev. Mary Douglas Glasspool, Bishop Suffragan of the Diocese of Los Angeles, will preach. Church of the Good Shepherd is at 25 Hillsborough St, Raleigh, NC 27603.
