Hi, guys —

May God bless you all.

  • If a man commits a same-sex sin, can he still become a Roman Catholic priest?

Thank you,

Mary Ann replied:

Dear ASinnerCalledbyGod —

I believe that the person has to have been free of same-sex activity and other unchaste behaviors for X number of years before being admitted to the seminary.

ASinnerCalledbyGod replied:

Dear Sister Mary Ann,

Thank you for the reply.

God bless.

Sincerely,

Fr. Jonathan, our priest/canon lawyer contact replied to me:

Dear ASinnerCalledbyGod,

I think Mary Ann's reply is probably accurate for many dioceses. It depends on the Bishop.
