Vatican 'Notification' regarding Sister Jeannine Gramick, S.S.N.D. & Rev. Robert Nugent
By Archbishop Charles J. Chaput

July 13, 1999

 

Ministry to homosexual persons is important to Catholics. It will remain so. Common sense requires, however, that people ordained or consecrated for Church service should teach what the Church teaches. Unfortunately, on issues pertaining to homosexuality, Sister Gramick and Father Nugent do not, as evidenced by the body of their work.

 

The Holy See's action regarding Sister Gramick and Father Nugent concludes more than 15 years of study, explanation and discussion of their views on homosexuality and the nature of their pastoral work with homosexual persons. It is guided by the Holy See's commitment to teach God's truth about the dignity of the human person, and by a respect for the rights of all involved — the rights of the everyday faithful, as well as the rights of Sister Gramick and Father Nugent.

 

Most Reverend Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap.

Archbishop of Denver
