Most Holy Redeemer Staff
Most Holy Redeemer Parish (MHR) is now, and has been for decades, an unapologetically gay parish
Redeemer is not a Catholic church with gay members. It is a
gay spiritual institution that is willing to use the
trappings of Catholicism, including the sacraments, just as
far as they can be made "inclusive" of the formative
experience of the parish, which is homosexuality, and no
farther. Here are some of the people who have made MHR what
atmosphere at MHR can corrupt good priests and laypeople. We
are all sinners. We have no desire to attack any person,
clerical or lay, for the sake of attacking, but if we are to
show the harm caused by the embracing of homosexuality at
MHR, we must tell the truth.
MHR Clerical Staff:
But it would incorrect to attribute the culture at MHR to a few clergy.
"The Gay and Lesbian outreach Committee-so unique, so bracing, so critically what the parish needed when it needed it-eventually withered away, a victim of its own success, when the entire parish had taken on the work it was formed to begin." -Godfrey, "Gays and Grays..." p29. As always, Fr. Godfrey's book is enlightening. From the context, we believe the transformation he describes occured in the mid 1980s.
accepts these facts, one understands why the following lay
people are in positions of authority at MHR. They do indeed
represent the community.
