I ask for prayers for a painful situation at Divine Savior Parish in Orangevale CA where I attend Mass and teach tai chi chih every Wednesday. After the former pastor retired in July 2022, there have been efforts by some to step back from his inclusive, welcoming manner. Our tai chi chih group has been relocated from the church vestibule to the gym lobby. A transgender parishioner has been banned from all public ministries. She had been a lector and a member of the parish council. It appears that the bishop has endorsed this action. Prayers for Jenny, for those of us who care about her and for those reactionary elements that seem to have forgotten that God’s House is for ALL.
