For more than a half-century, St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Monroeville has played an important, if not unique, role in the life of our diocese as a whole, as I know it has for many of you individually. Its visibility along the Parkway provided the means to proclaim to thousands of drivers every day that Jesus is alive. It was a Spirit-charged community, and members of our clergy and lay leaders alike have been fostered by that charism. And, it was the final resting place for some of our departed sisters and brothers.
As I am sure you are aware, there has not been an active Episcopal Church congregation worshiping at St. Martin’s for several years and the diocese now intends to sell the property.
So, this building may be sold to the ACNA diocese of Pittsburgh…? 😉
I wrote +Dorsey to suggest that and he politely indicated that he couldn’t comment on property matters.

I am sure TEC can find some Muslims to sell it to. Wouldn’t be the first time.
