Fr. Peter Maher & Paul Harris
We live in an increasingly polarised world and church where fear interrupts hope and the complexity and confusion of life militates against action for justice and love and finding God present. Is there an antidote to this way of living?
We will look at how the marginalised and silenced feel through a gospel reflection on the way Jesus sees the homeless, refugees, LGBTIQ people, the young and people suffering trauma and illness.
Fr Peter Maher: retired Sydney Catholic priest. Editor of The Swag. 30 years experience working with LGBTIQ Catholics and 20 years with people suffering post abortion grief and loss.
Paul Harris is an adult faith formation educator. He has been involved with LGBTQIA+ Catholic ministry for the past 24 years as a member of Acceptance Sydney, a group established in 1972 for LGBTQIA+ Catholics, their family and friends.
Paul shares his journey confident that through dialogue and witness, a greater understanding of diversity evolves.
