Pike, remarried last Friday aft- e • rtwo divorces, sayd his successor as Episcopal Bishop of California has no right to bar him from performing church functions. To emphasize that view, Pie on Christmas Eve celebrated holy communion at St. Aidan's Episcopal church. The congregation applauded Pike, 55, and his bride, the former Diane Kennedy, 31, when he introduced her. Bishop C. Kilmer Myers, Pike's successor, made a personal request Monday of clergymen in his 10-county area to bar Pike from performing official church functions or holding any public services. "He has no canonical authority to suspend me," Pike said of Myers' letter. "I'm as much a member of the diocese as he is." Pike said he received a Dec. 10 letter from Myers saying his late union was "spiritually dead," leaving him free to remarry. But Myers said his letter was "not intended to be an approval or blessing of that marriage in any way."
