For those interested, New Ways Ministry provides audio CDs and DVDs of speakers and workshops from the Symposium in March 2012. The symposium attracted 400 Catholic leaders from across the country, many of them priests, religious sisters, campus ministers, and other pastoral personnel.

Featured speakers included Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley speaking about marriage equality, which his state upheld in the 2012 elections and a lesbian woman, Barbara Johnson, who was denied communion at her mother’s funeral.

The meeting’s timely theme of “relationships” was examined from a variety of different perspectives from national and international Catholic speakers and thinkers:

1) Bishop Geoffrey Robinson of Australia, author, Confronting Power and Sex in the Catholic Church;

2) Patricia Beattie Jung, Professor of Christian Ethics, St. Paul School of Theology, author, Catholic Sexual Ethics in the 21st Century;

3) Luke Timothy Johnson, Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins, Emory University, author, The Writings of the New Testament: An Interpretation;

4) Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, former Lieutenant Governor of Maryland, author of Failing America’s Faithful: How Today’s Churches Are Mixing God with Politics and Losing Their Way;

5) Richard Rodriguez, a gay author, whose book Days of Obligation: An Argument With My Mexican Father, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize.

Additionally, eight workshops facilitated by national leaders on Catholic LGBT issues will focus on: youth and young adults; African-American issues; Latino/a issues, marriage, transgender issues; gay priests; lesbian nuns; coalition-building.
