Models of Ministry
The following is a list of 12 models of Catholic LGBT ministry that have emerged over the past few decades. The list is roughly chronological, with the first item being one of the earliest models and the last ones being the most “cutting edge” approaches. Many parishes use several of these models at the same time, or some hybrid version of two or more. These models are provided to help people think about how they might want to shape their parish ministry. They are not intended to be prescriptive, but to offer options.
