From the pitanglican.org Web site:

During their meeting on September 23, the Standing Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh unanimously committed itself to carrying forward the annual convention of the diocese in “an orderly and grace-filled manner” on October 4. Since the purported deposition of Bishop Robert Duncan by the Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops on September 18, the Standing Committee is serving as the diocese’s Ecclesiastical Authority.

The full text of the Standing Committee resolution follows:

The Standing Committee of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh unanimously commits itself to our Annual Convention going forward on October 4th in an orderly and grace-filled manner.

We ask that all members of the Diocese would join us in praying and working toward this end.
