According to our Diocesan Constitution and Canons, the diocese is to be divided into districts to "facilitate the cooperation of Parishes with each other and with the Diocese."  Fellowship and worship opportunities often originate within these districts. Certain positions on the Diocesan Board of Trustees and Diocesan Council are elected at the annual Diocesan Convention based on district membership.

Bishop Price, with the advice and approval of the Standing Committee, has proposed a new diocesan districting plan as follows:

District 1 – North
  District 2 – Metro
All Saints, Brighton Heights
St. Brendan's, Franklin Park
Christ Church, North Hills
St. Barnabas, Brackenridge
Emmanuel, North Side
Trinity Cathedral, Pittsburgh
St. Paul's, Kittanning
  Calvary, East Liberty
St. Andrew's, Highland Park
St. Matthew's, Homestead
Redeemer, Squirrel Hill
St. Stephen's, Wilkinsburg
St. Thomas, Oakmont
Holy Cross, Homewood
District 3 – South
  District 4 – East
St. Peter's, Brentwood
St. Thomas', Canonsburg
Nativity, Crafton
St. Paul's, Mt Lebanon
All Saints, Bridgeville
St. Stephen's, McKeesport
All Souls, North Versailles
  St. Bartholomew's, Scottdale
St. Peter's, Blairsville
Christ Church, Greensburg
Christ Church, Indiana
Advent, Jeannette
St. Michael's, Ligonier
St. Francis, Somerset

Diocesan Canon XVIII states, "…The Bishop, with the advice of the Standing Committee, shall formulate the districting plan which, after at least one open hearing, shall be submitted to Diocesan Council for its concurrence prior to presentation of the plan to the Convention for approval."

A public hearing, an opportunity to have questions about the redistricting answered, will be held at Calvary Episcopal Church, East Liberty, on Monday, August 2, 2010 at 6:00 p.m.
