Rite for Blessing of Same-Sex Relationships Now Available

After years of work by Integrity USA and its allies, The Episcopal Church approved a Rite for the Blessing of a Same-Sex Relationship at the 2012 General Convention. The Rite is now available in a final format - click here for just the rite, or click here to buy a full book with the Rite and the other liturgical resources.

The Church has authorized the use of this rite - depending on the assent of each diocesan bishop - beginning Advent I (December 2) of 2012. Does your diocese have policies allowing (or not allowing) this rite, or same-sex marriage? Please email us the information for a future resource.

Aelred

St. Aelred's Day Resources and Contest

For over 25 years, Integrity USA has celebrated the Feast of St. Aelred (January 12) as a special day for chapters and parishes to hold Eucharistic services in St. Aelred's honor. In 2012, Integrity's Connecticut chapter developed the resources on this page to aid in these services.

Integrity USA is holding a sermon contest. Compete for a $500 prize for the best Aelred-related sermon preached between December 15, 2012 and February 15, 2012, at an Episcopal service or event.  See details here.

Believe Out Loud Workshops

Believe Out Loud Workshops coming to you!

Integrity trainers are holding workshops all over the nation during 2012! Participants will learn to speak to people in their church or diocese about why it's important to welcome and include LGBT people in the lives of church communities. Participants will be given tools to engage in meaningful conversations about their inclusive beliefs, and they will be introduced to the process for a parish to become a Believe Out Loud Congregation. Would you like a workshop in your area? Email us to arrange it!

Exhibit Pack

Do you have a diocesan convention or LGBT pride event coming up?  If so, Integrity USA has a brand new exhibit pack available that highlights Believe Out Loud.  Components include a display, buttons, membership brochures, and Believe Out Loud Episcopal Congregation brochures.
