Greetings to the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh.
I want you to know that Episcopalians all over this church are praying for you and continue to pray for you. People from the western Pacific to South America, Central America, the Caribbean, the Churches in Europe, and all over the United States.
We are concerned about your well-being. We want to assure you that the wider church is there to support you, and we are fully confident of your ability to reorganize at this time. We are providing assistance as asked and we will continue to do so.
Remember that, in this season of Advent, we look for light and I leave that with you as a challenge. Find light in the midst of what looks like darkness.
You are a blessing to this church and you will continue to be an even larger blessing in this part of Pennsylvania
May God bless you and may God bless your deliberations.
The Most Rev. Katharine Jefferts Schori
The Episcopal Church
