THE BLESSING OF SAME-GENDER UNIONS AT TRINITY CHURCH

 

Under the policies of the Episcopal Diocese of Oklahoma, Trinity Church has received permission from the Rt. Rev. Edward J. Konieczny, Bishop of Oklahoma, to offer the blessing of same-gender unions to members of our church community. The Diocese's policies (see them here) require that any couple seeking this blessing be prepared to enter a life-long union, receive extensive counseling, and understand that such a union is not a legal marriage in the state of Oklahoma. At least one of the couple must be a member of the Episcopal Church.  The "banner statement" of Trinity Church is: "Seeing God in All People." We are grateful to Bishop Konieczny for helping us make this a further reality in our church family.
