Where Has Lionel Been?

Readers have no doubt noticed that I haven’t written anything on this blog lately. I apologize both for the lack of communication and lack of explanation. Although I have not left St. Paul’s, I have been attending Trinity Cathedral and singing in their choir for the past few months. I’ve done so to support the congregation that was greatly diminished by the departure of parishioners after the chapter decided that Trinity would no longer be the cathedral for the Anglican Diocese of Pittsburgh. I don’t know that anyone has done what I have done, but people from other churches, including St. Paul’s, occasionally show up at Trinity on Sunday morning. Two parishes, All Saints’, Bridgeville, and All Saints’, Brighton Heights, have visited the cathedral as a parish. (This might be impractical for St. Paul’s, but, if it happened, it would be dramatic.)

Being away from St. Paul’s most of the time, I have less material to write about on this blog. Another excuse for writing less here, however, is that I wrote extensively on my personal blog about the candidates to be the next Bishop of Pittsburgh, an excuse I will not have in the future.

Anyway, I will write on this blog when I think I have something useful to say. Meanwhile, I recommend your reading my personal blog, Lionel Deimel’s Web Log, and the Progressive Episcopalians of Pittsburgh blog focusing on The Episcopal Church, Pittsburgh Update. The latter is updated with news items every Monday evening.
