Episcopalians traveled from every part of the Diocese of Central New York to celebrate God’s love at the CNY Pride Parade and Festival on June 25, 2022. Our presence boils down to one message: [...]
The Episcopal Church welcomes you, and everyone you love.
Love one another, for love is from God. (1 John 4:7)
In the words of our bishop, the Rt. Rev. Dr. DeDe Duncan-Probe, “LGBTQ people are God’s beloved, made in the image of God, and are our beloved neighbors, friends, clergy and lay leaders of The Episcopal Church.”
Episcopalians in Central New York celebrate Pride because we believe in a God of love who created us to love one another. Period.
What we believe
We Episcopalians believe in a loving, liberating, and life-giving God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As constituent members of the Anglican Communion in the United States, we are descendants of and partners with the Church of England and the Scottish Episcopal Church, and are part of the third largest group of Christians in the world.
We believe in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, whose life, death, and resurrection saved the world.
We have a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; women and men serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God, and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of sexual identity or orientation.
We believe that God loves you – no exceptions.
