St. Peter's Church (Westchester)
"We have, over the past five years worked to raise the awareness of, and issues regarding, the LGBT community in this parish.
We have had workshops about human sexuality, equal rights, and the inclusivity of all people.
We have held workshops on human sexuality, open discussion groups, preached from the pulpit and have hung a Gay Pride banner next to the front doors of the church. We have seen a small influx in the number of LGBT people coming to our church.
The same is true for environmental issues where we began by surveying and changing the use of fuel and electricity as well as recycling and tree planting in our own parish."
The Rev. Joade Dauer-Cardasis
