Pizza & a Pint & Ignatian Conversations: “Building a Bridge between the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community”
St. Ignatius Church -- Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts
Best-selling author and Boston College alumnus Rev. James Martin, SJ, joined Jesuit Connections for the second installment this year of “Pizza & a Pint & Ignatian Conversations” in an evening co-sponsored with the Jesuit Parish of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.
Over seventy young adults participated in an intimate, honest, and wide-ranging conversation about the underlying issues of Fr. Martin’s latest book, Building a Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter Into A Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Spirituality, and how the book has been received by the Catholic community. Fr. Martin stayed for pizza and beer (and a lot of selfies) with Jesuit Connections before addressing an overflow capacity crowd of more than 1,000 at St. Ignatius Church for his book talk.
