The Office of University Mission and Identity is pleased to welcome Fr. Bryan Massingale to campus this spring to give a lecture entitled “Integrating Faith and Sexuality in the Age of Francis: A Call to Reflection and Solidarity.”
Mar. 10, 2020
LSC Conference Room
Directly addressing LGBTQIA+ issues, where faith and sexuality tend to intersect and surface most prominently, Fr. Massingale will address what has happened within the Catholic Church under the leadership of Pope Francis. He will also speak about the role of the Catholic University, particularly a Jesuit institution, in helping the church and communities enter into conversation to re-examine and reflect on fundamental belief systems and to engage those most deeply affected.
Fr. Massingale is the James and Nancy Buckman Professor of Theological and Social Ethics at Fordham University, as well as the Senior Ethics Fellow in Fordham’s Center for Ethics Education. Prior to his appointment at Fordham, he was Professor of Theology at Marquette University. He is the author of the book “Racial Justice and the Catholic Church” (2010) as well as many articles and essays, and is well known as a leader in the field of theological ethics, especially with regard to race, gender, and sexuality.
