Geoff Farrow to speak in Pasadena on Saturday

Fr. Geoff Farrow, the Roman Catholic priest who chose conscience over compliance and defied his church's edict to support Proposition 8 in the November 2008 election will be a featured speaker at All Saints Church in Pasadena on Saturday, February 21st.

The program will begin at 9:00 a.m. in the All Saints Forum with a conversation between Fr. Geoff and All Saints Rector Ed Bacon on "how to stay focused on faith and hope when the going gets tough." Following the plenary session, Fr. Geoff will lead a small group conversation continuing to explore the issues of faith, conscience and the Christian call to do justice.

"We are thrilled to welcome Fr. Geoff to All Saints Church," said Susan Russell, Senior Associate for Communication. "His courageous willingness to step out in faith makes him a true hero to so many who look to the church to speak for the oppressed and marginalized."

All Saints Church is located at 132 N. Euclid Avenue, Pasadena, 91101.

Father Farrow is a hero who's faith and courage have crossed all denominational and religious borders. I so wish I could be there. Much love to you. God keep your hearts warm and safe.

Please ask Father Farrow if he has thought about transferring his Holy Orders into the Episcopal Church, where he would certainly be more welcome than in Rome.
