In a nutshell, this posting states that the Standing Commitee for the continuing Diocese of Pittsburgh has been constituted
and has been recognized by the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church as the legitimate Ecclesiastical Authority of the
Diocese until the clergy and lay deputies of the Diocese meet in Convention on December 13th, 2008 to select an interim
bishop to provide pastoral services until the diocese is suffciently organized to elect a permanent bishop.
The Across the Aisle website is now the official website of the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh (TEC), as opposed to the
diocese of the same name that is part of the Southern Cone.
