Archbishop Listecki in Response to Fr. Greg Greiten

We support Father Greiten in his own, personal journey and telling his story of coming to understand and live with his sexual orientation.  As the Church teaches, those with same sex attraction must be treated with understanding and compassion.  My preference would have been not to publicly announce this because it can be confusing for some people as to whether someone with same sex attraction can minister as a priest.  However, as priests who have made a promise and commitment to celibacy, we know that every week there are people in our pews who struggle with the question of homosexuality.  Fr. Greg’s own story reminds each of us of God’s call to continue to grow in understanding and to live holy, chaste lives.

Archbishop of Milwaukee
