Dignity Mass for gay Catholics ended in San Antonio
October 25, 2010
Auxiliary Bishop Oscar Cantú of San Antonio, who is temporarily administering the archdiocese, has ended a weekly parish Mass sponsored by Dignity, a gay and lesbian organization at odds with Catholic teaching on homosexuality. The majority of Dignity chapters meet in non-Catholic churches; the San Antonio chapter had been gathering at a Catholic parish for 15 years.

If the Bishop of San Antonio allowed that kind of gathering, how do I know he will not allow this non-sense to happen when he takes over the Archdiocese of Los Angeles?

So then the question remains: Is there a local chapter of Courage, the organization for those with same-sex attraction, that is licit and recognized by the Church? If we want to help these folks to live their faith, the diocese needs to offer the alternative organization's services.
