St. Alexis Episcopal Church seeks to serve as a place of refuge for those who may have felt alienated from the church in the past. The church affirms LGBT people, including blessing same-gender relationships (as Mississippi does not yet have marriage equality). During the worship service, GLAAD's Director of Programs, Ross Murray, will deliver a brief homily and GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis, will bring greetings to the congregation.
GLAAD's Religion, Faith & Values program works to amplify the voices of LGBT-affirming communities of faith and LGBT people of faith. The program has secured national and religious media interest in stories that bring examples of LGBT equality in faith communities to Americans. The program trains openly LGBT and LGBT-supportive ministers, faith groups and individuals from a wide range of religions to share their stories in their local congregations and throughout mainstream media.
The worship service is open to all. Click here for more information on St. Alexis: http://stalexisjackson.org/
