It’s not easy being a Mormon in Missouri, but it’s not as hard as it might seem.
St. Joseph’s Episcopal Church is a church that’s had its fair share of ups and downs over the years, and that’s reflected in the church’s membership numbers.
It’s up from about 5,000 in 2012 to about 14,000 today.
There are more than 4,000 people serving in the clergy, and the number of missionaries is growing.
So there’s a lot of excitement about what’s going on here, especially with the new laws that took effect this week.
But it’s also a little more than a year ago that the church was rocked by a sexual assault scandal.
In the spring of 2017, a woman claiming to be a member of the church reported being sexually assaulted by an elder at her home.
She says she was assaulted by a woman who is now a church member.
She alleges that she was sexually assaulted in an upstairs bedroom and told her father she was pregnant.
That’s when the church leadership decided to do something about it.
A church spokesperson, who asked to remain anonymous, said in an email that they learned of the assault about a year and a half ago and made an immediate commitment to help her.
They also said that the elder who sexually assaulted her is now serving as a bishop.
The church said it was a “significant decision” that led to the suspension of the two women who were serving as deacons.
In a statement to local media, the church said the church is a “Christian institution that has always been about compassion, love, and justice for all.”
“The church has always welcomed people of all races, cultures, and ethnicities to join the church, and has always made accommodations for all of our members who may have been impacted by this tragic event,” the church wrote.
“We do not tolerate the intentional sexual abuse of children or adults by elders.
The elders are responsible for maintaining the integrity of our church and, as leaders, we take this matter seriously and hold them accountable for their actions.”
The church’s statement continued, “We will continue to support and support our sisters and brothers in all of their trials, hardships, and trials of faith.”
The church has not commented on the allegations.
St Joseph’s did not respond to questions about whether the church has removed any members from its ranks in response to the new regulations.
However, one of the deacons involved in the investigation is still active in the priesthood.
He said the new church regulations were made in an effort to protect children and the church itself.
“The bishop in charge of the diocese, we’re going to have to do the right thing here,” he told the St Louis Post-Dispatch.
“The bishop, he’s the person who’s making the decision, but he’s also the person responsible for the church.
He needs to make sure that this doesn’t happen again.”
He added that the new rules aren’t the end of the story.
“This is going to be an ongoing process.
It could be as long as six months or as long at the end.
But we’re here, we will continue, and we will do what we can.””
We have a lot to do,” he said.
“It’s a tough time for the dioceses, for the churches, for everybody.”
The bishop who is charged with the oversight of the new St. John the Baptist church in St. Charles, Missouri, is an ordained minister.
His name is William W. McBride.
He told the paper that he is not involved in any church disciplinary matters and has no plans to step down.
“I’m a minister, and I’ll continue to serve,” he added.
“I’m just one of many, and as far as I know, we all have the same goal, which is to serve God, our neighbors, our children.”
