Several current and former young adult members from Dignity/Washington (including Keith, Kenneth, Martín, and Michaela) joined about twenty other LGBTQ young adults from around the country for a retreat in Chicago. They report it was a meaningful and worthwhile time to share one another’s stories and build community among other young LGBTQ Catholics. Dignity/Washington is proud to be a sponsor for the retreat to help build the next generation of DignityUSA.
In early August, the community planned an evening fun outdoor event — picnic and whiffle ball game. Approximately 15 members gathered in a park and a great time was had by all!
Dignity/Washington looks forward to celebrating its 44th anniversary on October 1 with the traditional potluck dinner, silent auction, and presentation of community awards.
