A Church Apology to LGBTIQ People

‘I believe that the Church ... should apologise to the person who is gay.’ — Pope Francis, 2016. 

Perhaps for the first time in Australia, we have a Catholic Church respond to these words, where we invite you to community prayer in recognition of our failure to keep LGBTIQ people safe from discrimination and hurt. And to pledge that we do better from here on. 

Please join us — gay and straight together.

Friday 12 August at 8PM

(Corner of Bedford and Station Streets)

We acknowledge the Cadigal people of the Eora nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which St Joseph’s stands. St Joseph’s aims to Provide a safe place for all people to pray regardless of age, race, creed, gender, cultural background or sexual orientation.
