The Northern Province of the Moravian Church voted unanimously June 18 to enter into full communion with the Episcopal Church.
"I am abundantly delighted, and look forward to growth in mutual relationship and mission," Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori said after learning of the decision. "I believe we have much to learn from the Moravian tradition."
From next Sunday at all Episcopal services the men will sit on one side of the church and the ladies on the other. However, the ladies will be allowed to wear their hats.
