Challenges and Opportunities

By Lourdes Rodriguez- Nogues, President, DignityUSA

During the weekend of July18 -20, the Board had its second face-to-face meeting of the year, this time in Madison, Wisconsin. The folks from the Integrity/Dignity Madison community were very gracious hosts and we enjoyed joining them at their liturgy on Saturday night, followed by a gourmet pizza party. Thank you, Madison, for sharing your gifts with us, and for your warm, welcoming spirit. Thank you also, for your loyal support of DignityUSA and your generous contribution of talent and treasure through the years.

The Well of Many Rivers

Call To Action’s national conference is an annual homecoming. Catholics from around the country and abroad, women and men, married and single, divorced and remarried, ordained and lay, who span the entire spectrum of skin color, gender identity, sexual orientation, and expressions of Catholicism, gather for a weekend of inspiration and transformation. Attendees often refer to the conference weekend as the weekend of the year.

Ignoring the pleas of major political and religious leaders to cancel his attendance, San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone was the featured speaker at the recent March For Marriage on June 19th in Washington D.C.  Cordileone made his same, flawed and failed argument against civil gay marriage.

We celebrate the success of DignityUSA’s 21st Biennial Convention, which marks over 42 years of ministry and advocacy for the LGBT community in the Catholic Church. Dignity’s call to reform and justice for those marginalized within the Church has now bridged several generations, and the fruits of this unceasing labor were evident at this year’s national gathering, which brought together nearly 300 attendees from across the country, with a span of over eight decades in age. This year’s biennial Convention was held in progressive and lively Minneapolis, Minnesota, July 4-7, 2013.
