Dear People of God in Central New York,
Today, Rev. Tom Ferguson tendered his resignation as Canon to the Ordinary for Transition and Church Development, effective immediately, and I have accepted it. The pastoral directive I issued earlier this month, inhibiting Rev. Ferguson from priestly ministry, remains in effect. As previously stated, the ongoing Title IV process will be as transparent as possible while also maintaining appropriate confidentiality.
All of us are beloved children of God and I’m grateful for all of your loving responses over the past few weeks. For those seeking resources regarding addiction and wellness, please join us on Saturday onsite or online or contact our staff through Sarah Alamond. I ask your continued prayers for Rev. Ferguson and his family and all those who are suffering in this time.
Blessings of peace for the journey,
Bishop DeDe Duncan-Probe
