Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church Can Show Welcome & Respect to the LGBTQ+ Community

November 7, 2019 7 – 9 p.m.

Proclaimed a “Roman Catholic rock star” by Frank Bruni of The New York Times, James Martin, S.J. can be found on location with film director Martin Scorsese, serving as Stephen Colbert’s official chaplain, offering commentary on religion and spirituality for major media outlets, and tackling weighty matters as a member of the Vatican’s Secretariat for Communication. Editor-at-large of America magazine, he is also the author of many books, including New York Times bestsellers The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything and Jesus: A Pilgrimage, as well as frequent contributor to the likes of The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.

*Martin will be appearing LIVE via ZOOM in the Nazareth Arts Center*

Rev. Martin is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business, Loyola University Chicago, and the Weston Jesuit School of Theology.

Martin’s latest book, Building a Bridge, is testimony to his pastoral commitment. He calls upon LGBTQ+ Catholics and church leaders to enter into dialogue for the sake of building a “relationship of respect,compassion, and sensitivity.” Despite strong pushback from some quarters of the Church, Martin shared with Bruni: “I’m at total peace. I really am. An ocean of hate online is really wiped out by just a few tears from an LGBT person.”
