More blessings?

By on April 1, 2010

The diocese of British Columbia may be the next in Canada to ask its bishop to allow the blessing of married gay and lesbian couples. At the Mar. 6 to 7 synod meeting, a motion asking that priests be allowed to conduct blessings of gay and lesbian couples married under civil law was submitted by the parish of St. John the Divine, Victoria. As synod failed to finish its business, it will resume at the call of Bishop James Cowan later this spring.
