Ryan Sattler

Ryan Sattler began his life as an activist/volunteer in his hometown of Milwaukee. For more than 45 years, Ryan has focused on issues of racism, poverty, justice, and equality. He has served on numerous community boards and church related committees. With his wife, Joan, Ryan has been called to LGBT ministry in part because of his younger lesbian sister, who is now deceased. Since moving to Baltimore in 2009, Ryan and Joan have become active members of St. Matthew Parish, and have been instrumental in forming LEAD, a ministry supporting LGBT Catholics, their families, and friends.
