The new issue of Reclaim, the newsletter of the Catholic Association for Lesbian and Gay Ministry (CALGM), has just been published. It contains a good re-cap of their recent national conference in Albany, NY, entitled “Setting the Table for
LGBT People in a Diverse Church.” (Because of the many photos in it, the newsletter file is rather large, so it might take some time for it to load; an alternative is to view the newsletter on the CALGM website.
The newsletter contains a summary of the conference’s plenary sessions on storytelling, Latino/a LGBT issues, and LGBT youth. There’s also a moving section on the Association’s farewell to their pioneer leader, Father Jim Schexnayder, as well as a report from the membership meeting, highlights from the workshops, an account of a process session, and the text of a beautiful closing blessing.
