Local News coverage

Here's a video from WBNG

Here's the text:
Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Christmas is a time to be thankful, and for one church, it's a fresh start.

Rachael Hidalgo takes us to the first mass at the new Anglican Church of the Good Shepherd.
They're singing in praise, and thanking God that they now have a place to worship again.

"It's beyond what we could ever imagine to occupy and worship in," says Pastor Matt Kennedy.

The Anglican Church of the Good Shepherd has been without a home since last Christmas.

It's Diocese sued the church for not maintaining a modern stance on homosexuality.

The church lost it's [case] and had to shut down.

But the congregation found a new location only a mile away at the former St. Andrews Church.

"We're very thankful that we could be here in such a short amount of time. And it's a wonderful facility and we've got new parishioners, and we're very happy here," says John Chaney from Vestal.
WICZ also paid us a visit. Here's their report...

Beautiful. Now, if only we could find where they put the communion rails after Vatican II. ;)

Matt,

What encourages me apart from the fact that God has provided you guys with a new church building, is the fact that Good Shepherd has received positive media coverage.

May you and yours enjoy the blessings of him who became flesh and dwelt among us.
