What Is ‘New Ways Ministry’?


What is "New Ways Ministry"?


New Ways Ministry claims that it “educates and advocates for justice and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Catholics, and reconciliation within the larger church and civil communities.”

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops has stated that the group is not an approved Catholic group and cannot claim to speak on behalf of Catholics.

In 1999, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith determined that the group’s two founders were “permanently prohibited from any pastoral work involving homosexual persons and are ineligible, for an undetermined period, for any office in their respective religious institutes.”
