  • »Welcoming and Accompanying Our Brothers and Sisters with Same-Sex Attraction

An international conference designed to help answer the questions posed in the Lineamenta for the 2015 Synod on the Family: “The pastoral care of persons with homosexual tendencies poses new challenges today, due to the manner in which their rights are proposed in society. How can the Christian community give pastoral attention to families with persons with homosexual tendencies? What are the responses that, in light of cultural sensitivities, are considered to be most appropriate?”

This event took place August 10-12, 2015 at the Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan and is brought to you by Courage, a Roman Catholic Apostolate, and the Archdiocese of Detroit.
