The Reverend Mally Lloyd and the Reverend Katherine Ragsdale, two high-level Episcopal priests, married in Massachusetts on New Year’s Day.
According to LGBTQ Nation, which reported via the Patriot-Ledger, “The Rev. Lloyd and the Rev. Ragsdale were married in a ceremony at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston, with about 400 guests attending. Bishop M. Thomas Shaw, the state’s highest ranking Episcopal official, presided.”
Reverend Lloyd is a ranking official of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. Reverend Ragsdale is dean and president of the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge.
LGBTQ Nation reports that while the Episcopal Church’s canons state that marriage is between a man and a woman, the church at its General Convention in 2009 passed a resolution that says, “Bishops, particularly those in dioceses within civil jurisdictions where same-gender marriage, civil unions or domestic partnerships are legal, may provide generous pastoral response to meet the needs of members of this church.”
