Commissioner:

LGBTQ+A Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Questioning and Allies (informally known as the “Alphabet Soup Group”)

St. Philip’s is a welcoming community. In November 2014, the St. Philip’s Vestry voted to become affiliated with Integrity USA, an independent, “Lesbian, Gay Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning and Allies” (LGBTQ+A) organization of The Episcopal Church of the United States. Most St. Philippians know that we have been a welcoming church for decades, with numerous LGBTQ parishioners, staff and clergy serving in all areas of our parish ministries. The practical effect of this vote is to proclaim this long-standing fact. By taking this step, St. Philip’s is joining over 750 other Episcopal churches in the USA who have declared themselves to be welcoming churches and affiliated themselves with Integrity USA.

This group offers fellowship and participation in many welcoming activities and events throughout the year.  E-mail Bob or E-mail Cameron
