Spiritual guidance of LGBT community focus of workshop for Catholic schools

February 14, 2014

Kurt Bindewald, director of the Loyola University New Orleans Office of Mission and Ministry and advisory chair of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Ministry of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, presented a half-day workshop to 30 Catholic school administrators Jan. 25 at St. Mary’s Dominican High School in New Orleans.

Established last year by Archbishop Gregory Aymond to provide pastoral care and spiritual nourishment to the LGBT Catholic community, the workshop provided education, training, resources and support to administrators, counselors and teachers in Catholic schools. The workshop was featured in the Clarion Herald.

Bindewald was also the featured speaker Jan. 30 for “Theology on Tap,” the Archdiocese of New Orleans Young Adult Ministry’s nationally-recognized program featuring speakers on faith-based issues and offering fellowship with young adults ages 18 to 39. The title of Bindewald’s talk was “Materialism vs. Sacramentality: Finding the Holy in Your Everyday Life.”
