Courage Workshop for priests and deacons

Wednesday, April 24, 10 am to 3 pm

Diocesan Pastoral Center, 2110 Broadway, Sacramento

The clergy study day will address questions surrounding homosexuality from four perspectives:

– Theological anthropology

– Personal witness

– Psychological sciences

– The Church’s pastoral response to homosexuality

The work of Courage is fully consistent with the pastoral norms promulgated by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 1986 in Homosexualitatis problema.

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops 2006 document

Ministry to Persons with a Homosexual Inclination only identifies Courage and EnCourage—a complementary outreach to family and friends of a person with same-sex attractions (SSA)—as approved ministries in this area in the U.S.
