Peter Daly

Some Catholics have been blaming the sexual abuse of minors on the presence of a gay men in ministry.  Many suggest a “purge” of gay clergy and religious.

Over the course of this retreat, we will be looking at a variety of questions pertinent to this moment in the Church:

  • Is our ministry welcomed by our church?
  • Can we feel welcomed by our church that regards a gay orientation as “intrinsically disordered.”
  • Why am I afraid to tell you who I am?
  • How does the outsider see the grace of God?
  • What does it take to create a community of welcome? What are we ready to sacrifice for such a community?

The retreat is designed to assist gay priests, bishops, brothers and deacons, in developing better self-understanding, spirituality, friendships, and relationship with the institutional Church.
