We are excited to be part of a community working to end discrimination, as loving our neighbors is one of our most cherished values.
Mt. Lebanon has enacted an ordinance that bans discrimination in housing and employment, or the denial of service in a place that is open to the public, on the basis of "race, color, religion, national origin, ancestry or place of birth, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, marital status, age, or disability."
Mt. Lebanon School District policy bans discrimination on the basis of "race, age, sex, religion, color, national origin, language, sexual orientation, pregnancy, protected genetic information, gender identity, handicap or disability in its educational programs, activities and employment practices."
St. Paul's statement of welcome provides an overview of what we believe, and how we live: "Know that God loves everyone, no exceptions. You are always welcome at God's table at St. Paul's. St Paul's is a spiritual home and welcoming community to people of all ages, generations, educational backgrounds, financial means, abilities and disabilities, races, ethnicities and nationalities, without regard to sexual orientation, gender, gender identity/expression, with many different family and religious backgrounds. Some of us are lifelong Episcopalians; some were raised in other Protestant denominations or in the Roman Catholic Church; some are new to the Christian faith; some are not quite sure what they
believe. There is a place here for you."
