On Pentecost Sunday, Bishop Scott B. Hayashi led congregations from The Episcopal Diocese of Utah. They joined in support of the LGBTQ community by marching in the annual Pride Parade. It was a great way to continue the celebration of 150 years of social justice ministry in Utah.
The diocese was the largest ecclesiastical group to participate in the parade and all received a warm welcome from other marchers as well as observers.
A video was published on Facebook of Bishop Hayashi leading the procession and twirling the thurible. It has been viewed over 9,000 times.
Thank you to all who marched, rode, watched and prayed for us. The diocese is already looking forward to next year.
