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.
