Subject: Speaker on Catholic Outreach to Gay Community

A Roman Catholic nun will discuss her journey of faith and her decades-long outreach to the gay community from 7-9 p.m. Monday (June 28) at the LGBT Center, 3909 Centre St., in Hillcrest.

Sister Jeannine Gramick, a pioneer in Catholic pastoral outreach to the gay community, began her ministry in 1971 and, in 1977, co-founded New Ways Ministry, a Catholic social justice center working for the reconciliation of lesbian/gay people and the Roman Catholic Church.
Two of her books were the subject of an exhaustive investigation by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, formerly known as the Holy Office of the Inquisition, that culminated with a 1999 Vatican Order directing her to cease pastoral work with lesbian or gay individuals.  
Sister Jeannine, in good conscience, continues her ministry of education and advocacy on behalf of GLBT persons.
Admission is free.  Voluntary donations may be made at the door.
Her talk and its subsequent question-and-answer session are sponsored by Call to Action, Dignity and Mary Magdalene Apostle Catholic Community.
