Following Jesus in Holy Honesty

A retreat for gay priests, brothers, deacons, and all diocesan clergy personnel, congregational leaders, and formation personnel.

November 13-15, 2017 | Siena Retreat Center, Racine, WI

Led by Fr. Steve Wolf, retreatants will explore ways gay clergy and religious answer the call to beloved celibacy, keep searching for God in good will, minister to anger, resentment, and fear as did Jesus, and accept the grace of a kind of symbiosis of the Incarnation and Resurrection as an apostle in the world.

For gay priests, brothers and deacons, the retreat is designed to develop better self-understanding, spirituality, friendships, and relationship with the institutional church.

For diocesan clergy personnel, congregational leaders, and formation ministers, the retreat will develop better understandings of the personal and spiritual journeys of gay men in clerical and religious life.

Steve will draw from the pastoral message of Pope Francis and reflect on some writings of Thomas Merton, James Alison, and others. He will also share some of his experience from participation in PFLAG and his parish group of parents and LGBT Catholics.

Retreatants will receive copies of Steve Wolf’s essay, Gay Respect in the Good News and his faith-sharing resource, Forty Penances for Spiritual Exercise.

Registration Fee: $245

Cancellation Policy: Prior to October 30, 2017, all but $25 is refundable.
