As Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, we stand with the LGBTQI community as human persons made in the image of God and all God’s creation, sacred and holy. We affirm the dignity and rights of all human persons, no matter who they are. We serve our neighbor with love and without distinction. In my former ministry as an IV nurse, I served many members of the gay community during the early days of the AIDS crisis. Today, as a Sister of St. Joseph and lesbian woman, I work with New Ways Ministry, which educates and advocates for justice and equality for LGBT Catholics.
