Fr Mark Montebello has agreed to stop going against Church teachings, which say that priests should not officiate during ceremonies involving gay people.

This was the outcome of a meeting of one hour between Archbishop Mgr Charles Scicluna and the Dominican Friar, following a story in The Malta Independent which included photos of Fr Montebello blessing the rings of a gay couple during an engagement ceremony.

In what can be described as the first hitch in his term as Archbishop, Mgr Charles Scicluna has called an urgent meeting with Fr Mark Montebello after a story carried by The Malta Independent which exposed the priest blessing the rings in an engagement ceremony between two gay men.

This morning, The Malta Independent published a photo showing Fr Montebello blessing the rings in an engagement ceremony which took place last Friday.Pictures of the ceremony were published on Facebook showing Fr Montebello blessing their rings.

Independent: Controversial priest blesses rings at gay couple’s engagement ceremony

Controversial priest Fr Mark Montebello last Friday officiated the ceremony in which two gay men got engaged, The Malta Independent has learnt.

Pictures of the ceremony were published on Facebook showing Fr Montebello blessing their rings.

The officiating of civil unions, including engagement ceremonies, by priests goes against the guidelines of the Church and could be interpreted as being yet another incident in which Fr Montebello openly causes embarrassment to the Church. He has been reprimanded for his outspokenness by the Church in the past.

Parliament approved the Transgender Bill a year after the Civil Unions Bill. Photo: Matthew Mirabelli

It was April 1, so there was slight hope it was a joke. Alas, it was not. Our Parliament, in its last sitting at the Palace before it rose for a month-long Easter recess, approved the so-called Gender Identity Bill.

It was a unanimous vote, although two-thirds of the Opposition were not there. Maybe they were ashamed, and rightfully so. They should be.
