Father Paul Check leaving Courage ministry
September 07, 2016
Father Paul Check, who has been the executive director of the Courage ministry for almost nine years, is leaving that post to become seminary rector in the Diocese of Bridgeport, Connecticut.
Father Check had succeeded the late Father John Harvey, the founder of Courage, as leader of the ministry, which supports people who experience same-sex attractions in their efforts to live chastely in accordance with Catholic Church teaching. He will leave his post at the end of the calendar year. Father Paul Scalia, the chairman of the Courage board of directors, is expected to name a new executive director in coming weeks.
