La. Episcopalians celebrate bicentenniel, hope for more - 2theadvocate

The [diocesan] convention was fairly quiet compared to the "rancorous" nature of the last one, said the Rev. Drew Rollins, chaplain of St. Alban's Chapel. "We elected a fairly solid conservative deputation [to General Convention in Ohio in 2006], one that people on all sides would say is fairly conservative, and I think people understood that was a big move," he said.
Financially, the diocese is recovering, [Bishop] Jenkins said. "Funding has not been totally reinstated, but mostly. There are still some congregations withholding funds, but the number has decreased." Louisiana has not been impacted as severely as some other states where congregations have left the church, Jenkins said.
