Dignity USA Latest News

November 23, 2022 | by John Falcone | The new liturgical year often seems to come amid a crush of things to do: Thanksgiving preparations, Christmas plans, end-of-year parties, and so much more. The readings of the first week of Advent this year invite us to listen for Love’s voice in the midst of this cacophony and allow this Word spoken into our world and into our hearts to call us to change. Not so much a New Year’s resolution, as a renewed commitment to reckoning with the implications of God’s Love – for us and for our world.
November 22, 2022 | by DignityUSA | In light of this weekend’s attack at Club Q in Colorado Springs, Colorado, that killed five children of God, injured at least eighteen, and left countless people across the country traumatized, we are calling on you to speak out strongly against this attack, to explicitly condemn violence against LGBTQ+ people, and to take other steps to help end the horrific violence being inflicted on the LGBTQ+ community and other marginalized communities in our country.
November 22, 2022 | by DignityUSA | In a November 21 letter to the leadership of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) in the wake of the attack on Club Q, a Catholic LGBTQIA+ advocacy organization called for the bishops to explicitly condemn anti-LGBTQ+ violence. DignityUSA advocates for justice, equality, and full inclusion of LGBTQIA people in the Catholic church and society.
November 21, 2022 | by DignityUSA | DignityUSA is deeply saddened and troubled by this weekend’s attack at Club Q in Colorado Springs that took the lives of five, wounded dozens, and traumatized countless people. We mourn with the families and friends of all those killed, and pray for the full and quick recovery of the injured. We hope to be among those providing space for those shaken by this incident to come together to find healing community.
November 16, 2022 | by Richard Young | The last Sunday of the liturgical year has been celebrated as the Feast of Christ the King since Pope Pius XI instituted it in 1925 as a response to what he felt was a growing secularism in the world. Today’s reflection problematizes the parallel between our Christ and human royalty, inviting us to think beyond such patriarchal political structures and bear witness to a universal Love.
