Catholics become informed.

Part 2.

How did we get here ? ..........

A brief history of New Ways Ministry
     In 1976, Bishop Francis J. Mugavero of Brooklyn, New York, wrote a pastoral letter, "Sexuality: God's Gift," which was one of the first Roman Catholic statements to contain a compassionate and encouraging message to gay and lesbian people. Gay and lesbian people deserved to be treated equally in society and the Christian community, he noted, and then he addressed them directly, stating, ". . . we pledge our willingness. . . to try to find new ways to communicate the truth of Christ because we believe it will make you free."

Please Get Informed !
