All are welcome to the next Cathedral Book Club meeting pm Monday, May 14, when the book for discussion will be "Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity," by Ft. James Martin, SJ. Fr. Jack Hurlery notes that there is now a revised and expanded edition of this work that has attracted considerable attention and is a worthwhile read.
Newark’s Cardinal Joseph W. Tobin has commented “In too many parts of our church, LGBT people have been made to feel unwelcome, excluded, and even shamed. Father Martin’s inspiring new book invites church leaders to minister with more compassion and reminds LGBT Catholics that they are as much a part of our church as any other Catholic.”
We meet from 6:45 to 8:00 pm in the West Conference Room.
