Titles Not Waiting for a Cure Oral History Project: Interview with Sister Joanne Lucid B.V.M.
Description BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION: Sister Joanne Lucid is director of the AIDS Ministry of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis. SUBJECTS DISCUSSED: Her narration explores the relationship between her faith in God and her work providing emotional and spiritual support to persons affected by HIV/AIDS and their families. She also discusses the tension between her activities and the position of the Catholic church toward women and gay men. Sister Lucid feels that the church, and Minnesota society in general, has yet to acknowledge the dominance of sexism, homophobia and racism and the relationship between these forms of oppression and the continued spread of HIV and the treatment of those living with the disease.
