Darien church seeks Dennis Canon ruling

St. Paul’s Church of Darien, Connecticut, according to a press release dated November 4, 2011, is requesting that a Connecticut Superior Court consider the legitimacy of the Dennis Canon. The church is one of the “Connecticut Six” that have tried to leave The Episcopal Church with parish property. The move is surprising, as the Connecticut Supreme Court recently ruled against another of the Connecticut Six churches, Bishop Seabury Church, Groton. (See Pittsburgh Update story here.)

The church is led by the Rev. Christopher P. Leighton, formerly a priest in the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh.
