What a conference!!!! Here's the highlights....
Thursday, July 4, 100 Dignity members and leaders joined 60 colleagues from the Global Network of Rainbow Catholics
at the Forum on the State of the Global LGBTI Catholic Movement
. We heard from ten speakers regarding the justice work being done by their organizations in nearly every part of the world, outlining their accomplishments and greatest challenges. Theologians Miguel Diaz
, Mary Hunt
and Bryan Massingale
spoke to the gathering, providing terrific input on the Gospel mandate for this work. Through shared meals, working groups and liturgy, relationships that can help build bridges across borders were formed.

Friday, July 5th -7th 25 Dignity/New York members were among the over 325 people attending the Jubliee conference where they were inspired by rich, moving liturgies and powerful keynote speakers, Mary Hunt, and Urvashi Vaid.
Other conference highlights include an engaging membership meeting, the chance to shape DignityUSA’s future through a unique Visioning session which has provided valuable input to the Board, affirming caucus events, and time to reconnect with old friends while welcoming new members.
