Jeannine Gramick, a Roman Catholic nun, is a pioneer in Catholic pastoral outreach to the gay community. She began her ministry in 1971 and in 1977 she co-founded New Ways Ministry, a Catholic social justice center working for the reconciliation of lesbian/gay people and the Roman Catholic Church.
Two of her books were the subject of an exhaustive investigation by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (formerly known as the Holy Office of the Inquisition) that culminated with a 1999 Vatican Order directing her to cease pastoral work with lesbian or gay individuals. Sister Jeannine, in good conscience, continues her ministry of education and advocacy on behalf of GLBT persons.
“You don’t have to be gay or Catholic to stand up and cheer for Sister Jeannine Gramick-a most unlikely, very funny rebel-who is taking her battle with the Vatican over the rights of gay and lesbian Catholics all the way to Rome…and the door of the pope: Benedict XVI”
