Bishop Molloy Passionist Retreat House is offering an “Inclusive Day of Learning” for Clergy, Lay Pastoral Ministers, Persons who are LGBT+, and their Families and Friends featuring Professor, Dr. Richard Gaillardetz, Dean of Theology at Boston College and President of the Catholic Theological Society of America. Dr. Gaillardetz is also the parent of a gay man.
On Saturday, October 27th, 2018 Dr. Gaillardetz will give two presentations: “The Church as an Inclusive Community”; and, “A Father, Husband, Practicing Catholic, Parent of a Gay Son Shares His Experience”.
The program will include:
An opportunity for participants to listen to each other in a spirit of accompaniment as they discuss their experiences and their concerns; and,
Prayer to remind us that we are always in the Presence of God; to open us to the Wisdom and compassion of God; to help us to deal with the obstacles we experience in our attempts to build inclusive models of the Body of Christ; and to empower us to live out Jesus’ mandate to proclaim the gospel to every creature.
