On September 19, NDMU welcomes Jason Steidl Jack to campus to share his LGBTQ+ work in the Catholic Church.
Jason Steidl Jack is an assistant teaching professor of religious studies at St. Joseph's University in New York. He earned a PhD in systematic theology at Fordham University. Since 2015, he has been part of Out at St. Paul (OSP), the LGBTQ ministry of St. Paul the Apostle Church in Manhattan, and he serves on the board of directors for Fortunate Families.
On Tuesday, September 19, Dr. Jason Steidl Jack will present "LGBTQ Catholics: Redeeming A Complicated Tradition." Steidl Jack argues that it is possible for the Church and Church-adjacent institutions to change if they begin to listen to and learn from the experiences of LGBTQ Catholics at the grassroots. The Church's only hope for salvation is to learn from the queer community, those who have been marginalized and hurt by the church yet continue to create communities of resilience, hospitality, joy, and love.
This event is co-sponsored by Religious Studies, Mission & Ministry, Student Life, and the Global Solidarity Committee.
