Although more people today know someone living with same-sex attraction, our idea of what the Church actually believes about it, and about them, is often confused by false assumptions and misunderstandings.
Learn about this topic in the presentation “Same-Sex Attraction: What Does the Catholic Church Teach and How Does It Minister to Those Affected?” to be held 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 4 at St. Peter Church, 2835 Manor Road in West Brandywine, Chester County.
Father Philip Bochanski, C.O., chaplain for the Courage Apostolate in Philadelphia who has years of experience in adult faith formation, will discuss the fundamentals of Catholic teaching on same-sex attraction and chastity.
He will also discuss the support and outreach that the Church provides to men and women living with this reality, and to those who love them.
The talk is sponsored by the St. Peter Parish Respect Life Committee as part of “Life, Love & Sexuality – The Series.” The presentation is free and reservations are not needed.

You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
