From Bishop Paul Marshall to the Bethlehem Diocese Clergy
It has been complained by the Standing Committee, in a letter received this week, that The Rev. Gregory Malia has by certain publicly known actions and failures to act, abandoned the Discipline and Worship of this Church.
I have affirmed their finding and according to canon, issued today a new inhibition that gives him six months to make matters completely right (Title IV Canon 10 outlines the possibilities). If at the end of six months matters remain as they are now, formal deposition will take place.
Part of the inhibition forbids his using ecclesiastical titles or holding himself out as a priest; I wish to be made aware of any violations that may occur. Thank you for your cooperation.
