Local Episcopal church rejoices in ruling

Texas Supreme Court ruling goes in favor of Episcopal congregations that separated from national church

(Continued)

Fort Worth Bishop The Rt. Rev. Rayford B. High Jr., representing the diocese that remained with the national church, stated they were “disappointed” in the supreme court ruling.

“While it is a disappointment not to have a definitive decision, as followers of Jesus Christ, we live in hope,” stated Rev. High. “Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori joins me in acknowledging our disappointment and urging all of us to be gentle with one another during this trying time, with the important goal of continuing our worship of God and our ministries in this community in as uninterrupted a manner as possible.”

High added, “I remain convinced that we are right in our affirmation that we are the continuing Diocese of Fort Worth and that I am its bishop.”
