Solidly enjoyed by Dignity members and non-members earlier this year, QCF returns this October for a second season of monthly webshows.
What is QCF? Live web-interviews with featured guests, with real-time questions and conversation from attendees, all from the comfort of our homes and computer screens.
QCF explores with guests in an intimate way often not experienced in the conference room. Guests’ spirituality, faith and prophetic witness are among the topics probed.
We’re thrilled to start the new season by welcoming Casey and Mary Ellen Lopata and their son Jim to the screen. The Lopata parents founded “Fortunate Families”, a ministry we think is one of Catholicism’s best kept secrets. Fortunate Families brings parents together to support and empower them to advocate for justice for their LGBT daughters and sons. The Lopatas’ son Jim, who is gay, has made his own journey of faith in ways that intersect and diverge from his parents’ prophetic call. Tune in and get to know this fortunate family with us!
