Abstract: Central California Episcopalians with live Internet video feed.
Episcopalians in the Diocese of San Joaquin (which withdrew from the Episcopal Church in December, 2007) will gather on Saturday, January 26 for Moving Forward, Welcoming All at the Church of the Saviour in Hanford, California.
House of Deputies President Bonnie Anderson and the Rev. Canon Robert Moore, appointed by the Presiding Bishop as the interim pastoral presence for continuing Episcopalians in the diocese, are keynote speakers for the gathering to offer support and encouragement to Episcopalians. Anderson's comments to the gathering, expected to draw Episcopalians from across the diocese and the state, will be videocast.
A live video stream of the event will be carried via Episcopal Life Online, and Viewers can watch the proceedings by logging on to http://www.episcopalchurch.org/.
The video stream will also bring Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori's greetings to continuing Episcopalians gathered at the Central California Valley church, The videocast will begin about 10 a.m. Pacific time (11 a.m. Mountain, 12 a.m. Central, 1 p.m. Eastern) according to Mike Collins, Episcopal Life Media Video/Multicast Unit director.
Viewers will be able to watch the videocast, from 10 a.m. to 11.45 a.m. Pacific time in Windows Media and Real Media versions in high and low quality as well as audio only for those with slower internet connections.
The event is the culmination of a five-day "listening tour" by Canon Moore to learn first hand the experiences and hopes of clergy and laity remaining in the Episcopal Church in Stockton, Riverbank, Fresno, Bakersfield and Visalia.
