Sister Jeannine Gramick and Francis DeBernardo with New Ways Ministries will speak at Resource Center Dallas tonight at 7:30 p.m.
Gramick is a co-founder of New Ways Ministries, a Catholic organization which has focused on supporting gay and lesbian rights since the 1970s. DeBernardo has worked with New Ways for about 15 years.
They’re warm, entertaining, supportive allies. They will discuss the movement for equality for LGBT people in society and the Catholic Church.
In an interview with Dallas Voice that will appear in this week’s paper, Gramick said she began her work on behalf of the gay and lesbian community in 1971 after befriending a gay man. Despite orders from the Vatican to end her work and not speak publicly about gay and lesbian issues, she continues working tirelessly on behalf of the community.
Resource Center Dallas is located at 2701 Reagan St.
