The following statement has been issued by the Standing Committee of the Diocese of Easton regarding Title IV matters involving Bishop Marray:

On May 30, information was posted on The Episcopal Church’s website for reporting Title IV misconduct by bishops in the Episcopal Church regarding two complaints filed against Bishop Marray under the Church’s Title IV canons.

Both the Standing Committee and Diocesan Council have been kept apprised of the proceedings, as have the complainants and Bishop Marray.

As reported on The Episcopal Church’s website identifying the current Title IV cases against bishops, both complaints against Bishop Marray have been referred by the Reference Panel to Conciliation (Title IV, Canon 10). Bishop Marray was advised of this in a Pastoral Direction from the Vice-President of the House of Bishops, The Rt. Rev. Mary Gray-Reeves.

From the beginning, Bishop Marray has been cooperating fully with the Title IV process including abiding by the Pastoral Direction to refrain from discussing these Title IV matters either publicly or privately.

We ask for the church’s continued prayers for all involved in these two complaints as we move forward seeking reconciliation, healing, and a renewed commitment to ensuring our churches are safe and welcoming places where all are treated with dignity and respect.
