Catholic priest witnesses same-sex wedding in New York
CWN – August 20, 2012
A New York Times notice about the wedding of two homosexual men listed a Catholic priest as “assisting” at the ceremony.
A Lutheran minister presided at the same-sex wedding, celebrated on a chartered yacht. But the Times added that Father Michael DeVito, the cousin of one of the wedding partners, also took part in the ceremony.
Father Michael DeVito is the pastor of Sacred Heart church in Suffield, Connecticut, and a member of the presbyteral council for the Hartford archdiocese.
