A 25-year member of the Courage International apostolate says the ministry formed him into the man he is today.
Angelo, who attended his first Courage conference in 1995, said he found his way to the group through the suffering of his own experience while living a gay lifestyle in New York City and Hollywood, in his video testimony published Thursday on YouTube.
The Courage apostolate aims to help people with same-sex attraction practice their Catholic faith and live according to Church teaching. It was founded in New York by Father John F. Harvey, OSFS in 1980 at the request of then-archbishop of New York, Cardinal Terence Cooke.
Now under current executive director, Fr. Philip Bochanski, Angelo has worked at Courage International as a staff member for 15 years.
