Council Updates Diocesan Alcohol Policy

April 14, 2016

Diocesan Council recently passed a new policy regarding alcohol at church functions that brings the diocese into compliance with the churchwide policy adopted by General Convention at its meeting last summer. The council requests that every parish adopt a similar policy by September 2016. 

The policy prohibits serving alcohol to individuals “showing signs of intoxication,” bans hard liquor at diocesan events, and requires “appealing non-alcoholic alternatives” to be offered “with equal prominence and accessibility” at events at which alcohol is served.
