June 26, 2015

A Statement From Bishop Julian Dobbs regarding the decision on
Marriage from the Supreme Court of the United States.

Greetings in the name of our Lord,

The College of Bishops of the Anglican Church in North
America have released a statement on marriage following the
decision from the Supreme Court of the United States which is
copied below.

The position of our diocese on marriage is clearly and publicly
stated in our canons, "The Diocese affirms our Lord's teaching
that Holy Matrimony is in its nature a covenantal union,
permanent and lifelong, of one man and one woman. No
marriage or other conjugal union of persons shall take place in
any of the Congregations or Missions of the Diocese, or with
the participation of the clergy of this Diocese except in
accordance with these Canons." Title III, canon 4, Section 1.

In faithful witness to Christ our Lord,

Your brother and bishop,

Bp. Julian Dobbs
