Catholic Church Closes London’s Gay-friendly “Soho Masses”

posted on January 3, 2013

The Catholic Church plans to end gay-friendly masses in a central London church, reports Tom Heneghan at Reuters. The church, which has held the services since 2007, is located in Soho, a neighborhood at “the heart of London’s gay scene.” Heneghan writes, “Conservative Catholics in Britain have long complained to the Vatican about the Soho Masses, saying they flouted Church teaching on homosexuality, and small groups sometimes protested outside the church during the services.”
