We are grateful for the work of the Person and Identity Project which assisted our leaders in Catholic education in the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis—including priests, Catholic school principals, and other members of parish leadership—to see the depth of gender theory’s influence and the seriousness of what is at stake. Our leaders in Catholic education were able to more deeply appreciate the challenges facing our Catholic educational institutions and more readily prepared to meet the pastoral need of students and families who are struggling with these difficult questions about our created identity as male and female.

Emily G. Dahdah, PhDAssociate Director of Catholic Education, Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis

The work of the Person and Identity Project is a major service to families and parishes navigating urgent issues around 'gender identity' and 'gender transition.' The information here is objective and up to date.

Deacon Patrick W. Lappert, MDDiocese of Birmingham

This is an excellent resource for Catholic school leaders, faculty, and staff! It is a tremendous support to have in one easily accessible location, sound research, information, and tools for schools to stay ahead of the curve on the issues of human identity all our schools are facing. There are great videos for use in teacher orientation. A guided discussion of the FAQs and the articles on the home page would make for a very rich in-service.

Elias J. MooSuperintendent of Catholic Schools, Archdiocese of Denver

I wanted to thank you for the single best presentation that I have seen on gender dysphoria, and our Catholic understanding of human anthropology.
