Reverend Greg Fry is the priest in charge at the Grace Episcopal Church in Pine Bluff. She made the announcement to his church on Sunday. Leaders with the Episcopal Diocese said they will meet with members of the church and with Fry to see if she will remain the head of the church.
Leaders said they accept anyone into their church, regardless of their gender identification.
"It's now something the church is facing along side culture and we're trying to find a response," said Bishop Larry Benfield of the Diocese of Arkansas.
We reached out to Fry but she has not returned our call.
