Pilgrimage to Justice: Catholic Lenten Reflections on LGBTQ Equity

This webinar series, co-presented by HRC and DignityUSA, will gather Catholic leaders from a variety of sectors to discuss the Lenten themes of liberation and justice for marginalized communities, and how they are an invitation to consider how to develop a spirituality and praxis of LGBTQ inclusion. LGBTQ Catholics and other LGBTQ Catholic advocates will discuss their journeys and ministries that have sought to make the Catholic Church and the world more inclusive and just for the LGBTQ community. We will discuss the Catechism's instructions on non-discrimination and the affirmation of human dignity, the urgency of protecting LGBTQ Catholic youth, and the life and witness of the transgender community. These discussions are an invitation to Catholics and non-Catholics alike to live a life of respect, compassion, and sensitivity towards the LGBTQ community.
