Bondings 2.0 provides timely news updates, quality commentary, and spiritual/theological reflections on Catholic LGBT issues of our time.

Bondings 2.o is a project of New Ways Ministry, a gay-positive ministry of advocacy and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Catholics, and reconciliation within the larger Christian and civil communities.

The blog includes several series: “All Are Welcome,”  a series which focuses on Catholic gay-friendly faith communities; “News Notes,” an occasional feature which provides brief summaries of news articles with links to the original sources; “Quote to Note,” an occasional feature which provides witty or insightful quotations from news articles; “Campus Chronicles,” a series which focuses on Catholic LGBT issues on college campuses.

The blog also maintains a “Catholic LGBT Calendar” with a listing of relevant events in the US and worldwide and links to several New Ways Ministry resources, like our publication, Marriage Equality: A Positive Catholic Approach, or information on DVDs of the 7th National Symposium on Catholicism and Homosexuality.

    I like the blog because I don’t have to wait for the paper issue of Bondings to arrive, and therefore I can read postings in a more timely manner. I just hope that I have time to read the blogs!!
