St. Francis posts its church services on its Facebook page; the Jan. 26 Mass was posted, but has since been taken down.
Another church member, Sherri Glezman, said she was appalled at the sermon.
“It is upsetting and offensive that Fr. Roman used his platform to voice his political opinion about the Biden administration and it is deeply disturbing that he went even further to purposefully single out the LGBTQ+ community,” Glezman said in a written statement to the Record-Eagle.
