Progressive Episcopalians of Pittsburgh
A Member of the Via Media USA Alliance

Progressive Episcopalians of Pittsburgh (PEP) is an association of Episcopal clergy and laity dedicated to maintaining the health and unity of The Episcopal Church, including the Diocese of Pittsburgh, as a theologically diverse expression of Anglicanism in America. PEP is a founding member of Via Media USA, an alliance of similar groups based in various Episcopal dioceses that carry out programs of education and reconciliation.

If you support The Episcopal Church and want the Diocese of Pittsburgh to be a fully participating diocese within it, we invite you to become a member by filling out and returning a membership form. Support for The Episcopal Church is especially important in this diocese now.

PEP has two classes of membership, Active and Affiliate. Active members must have some connection to the Diocese of Pittsburgh, usually living in or working in the diocese. Active members must also make at least a token dues contribution. (The minimum contribution is $1; $15 is suggested; more is always welcome.) Affiliate members have no current connection to the diocese or pay no dues. (Typically, affiliate members are former Pittsburghers or simply Episcopalians who want to support The Episcopal Church in a diocese where it is threatened.) All members receive the PEP newsletter PEPtalk. Active members may vote in PEP elections.

Of course, you may also contribute to PEP without becoming a member. PEP is a tax-exempt public charity under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
