The Episcopal Diocese of Maine actively affirms the full inclusion of LGBTQ+ people in all sacraments and levels of leadership. We strive to create a safe, open, and affirming environment for everyone. In doing so, we honor the teachings of Jesus. Know that you, whoever you are, whatever your gender or identity, belong in the Episcopal Church and Episcopal Maine Youth. We lift up prayers of solidarity and lament as we pray for our trans siblings in Texas.
