A nun's secret ministry to the transgender community

 |  NCR Today

Not surprisingly, the sister’s name and congregational affiliation are kept anonymous throughout this moving account.

Though most members of the Roman Catholic hierarchy have yet to even utter the word “transgender,” this sister has served the community for over a decade. It’s a must read.
