After many years of being an inclusive and welcoming parish, the following welcoming statement was adopted in 2017 by the Vestry of St. Stephen’s Cathedral:
St. Stephen’s Episcopal Cathedral welcomes all people to join us in worship, fellowship, and service, regardless of race, ethnic background, gender or gender identity, sexual orientation, capability or circumstances of life.
With the dismantling of Integrity, the Episcopal organization that advocated for the full inclusion of the LGBTQ community in the life of the Episcopal Church, the listing of parishes in the Believe Out Loud directory has become outdated. St. Stephen’s Cathedral envisions a church where people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions are welcomed and affirmed.
You can look for us at the Pride Festival on July 30 in Harrisburg!
