Catholic Pride Blessing

Add Your Name to the Catholic Pride Blessing

In March, the Vatican released a statement saying that the Catholic Church could offer no blessings to the same-sex couples. While this statement has caused pain and will continue to harm many, we also know that millions of Catholics all over the globe already support, affirm and bless LGBTQI individuals and couples couples with their care. True blessing doesn’t come from hierarchies of power and control. It comes from the love and support that authentic communities pour out on one another.

We won’t wait for the Vatican to recognize the gifts that LGBTQI people and their love bring to the Church. On June 1st, we’re holding the Catholic Pride Blessing, an online event that will bring together Catholics from across the country to offer our love, solidarity, and affirmation to LGBTQI people as Pride Month kicks off. We want you to be a part of it. Register Now.

We need your help. Add Your Name to the Blessing. We’re calling on friends, allies, and advocates to offer blessings of their own and express their care and support for the LGBTQI community. You can submit your words of affirmation and care in a photo, video, or text and we’ll feature it on our website or during the Catholic Pride Blessing service. We're looking for short prayers, words of affirmation, and images of your family standing up for LGBTQI inclusion. Show your solidarity with LGBTQI people and send your blessings today. Or, sign the Catholic Pride Blessing Statement that'll be featured in the Catholic Pride Blessing event on June 1st.

As Pride Month approaches, we want to speak boldly in support of the inclusion of LGBTQI people, couples, and families. We pray that this Pride month would be an empowering season of solidarity and that the Vatican's pronouncements on LGBTQI people and their love will not be the final word.

Join us. Add Your Name Today.
