On Tuesday night, Episcopalians approved a churchwide ceremony for blessing same-sex couples.
During the Episcopal General Convention in Indianapolis, 80 percent of the House of Deputies voted to authorize a provisional rite for same-sex unions for the next three years.
Same-sex couples will have to undergo counseling before the ceremony is performed.
Under the new policy, each Episcopal bishop will decide whether to allow the ceremonies in the local diocese.
