CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The bishop of the Diocese of Charlotte expressed his support in a letter to parents of students at Charlotte Catholic High School.
The Rev. Peter Jugis is referencing to an assembly at the school on March 21 where a nun who was scheduled to talk about gender focused a lot on homosexuality.
Many students found Sister Jane Dominc Laurel’s words inappropriate and parents were upset they weren't notified.
In the letter, Jugis said, “I want to express my support and encouragement for all the parents, students, staff and faculty at the high school. We must move forward toward healing with charity, the hallmark of our Christian life."
