Guidelines Developed for Amending Church Records
for Identity Changes
At the request of General Convention (2018-A088), The Archives of The Episcopal Church has prepared a set of recommendations for developing local policy on name and gender changes to Episcopal Church records. The Guidelines for Policy on Amending Church Records for Name and Gender Changes are available on the Archives Website with Spanish translation and supporting resources and links.

The guidelines may be used by parishes and dioceses to address individuals’ requests to align name and gender entries with usage they have legally adopted in civil jurisdictions. Name and gender identity in records is particularly sensitive to instances where individuals seek to safeguard their privacy, protect themselves from harm, or simply to revise records that do not accurately represent their identity. 

Workshops & Resources
Preaching Hope in a Time of Climate Crisis
The Rev. Dr. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas & the Rev. Stephanie Johnson
March 3, 10, & 17,
7:00pm - 8:30pm (ET)

Climate change is called the moral challenge of our time, yet many preachers avoid discussing it. Looking ahead to Easter and Pentecost, we will discuss the spiritual/moral imperative to preach about climate change, identify obstacles to climate preaching, and receive theological and homiletic resources. Resources will be available online for asynchronous interaction. Synchronous classes will include a mix of presentations, small group conversation, and whole group discussion.
