Spring Clergy Study Day – Clarity and Charity: An Authentically Catholic Response to Homosexuality (IOCF)
Presented by Father Philip Bochanski and Bishop John LeVoir.
Fr. Philip Bochanski, executive director of Courage International, will review Church teaching on identity, sexuality and sexual ethics in general, and the terminology used in relation to same-sex attraction, to provide clarity on authentic Church teaching and to empower others to present this teaching in a compassionate way. He and Bishop John LeVoir, both former Courage chaplains, will then discuss how “speaking the truth in love” to someone about his or her identity, vocation and relationships can lead him or her to a greater self-understanding and fulfillment in Christ. They will also consider the impact that the experience of same-sex attraction and sexual identity discordance have on the lives of individuals, families, and the parish community.
