The following list published on the website of the New Ways ministry was sent by a reader to Cal Catholic on Jan. 16.

Wikipedia: “In 1999, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, then under the leadership of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, condemned [New Ways’s] positions on homosexuality and ordered co-founders Sr. Gramick and Fr. Nugent to cease pastoral ministry within the gay and lesbian community.”

From the New Ways site:
Below is a partial list of known “gay-friendly” Catholic parishes and faith communities.  Thank you for helping us add to this growing list!  If you are aware of such a parish that is known as welcoming to lesbian and gay Catholics as members and active parishioners, please let us know.  Tell us if this welcome is because of a support program, spirituality group, mission statement, participation in gay community events, involvement with parents or simply the friendliness of pastoral staff.
