Protesters held vigil at St. Mary's Cathedral in San Francisco last week to protest the Archdioceses' plan to make controversial changes to the faculty handbook for four local parochial high schools. The document calls on teachers to lead their public and private lives in accordance with church teachings on homosexuality, abortion, birth control and other behaviors. A similar controversy erupted last year in the East Bay when Catholic schools added language to their teacher contracts. Forum will hear from the church, parents and students about the change.
