New Ways Ministry’s Eighth National Symposium, “Justice and Mercy Shall Kiss: LGBT Catholics in the Age of Pope Francis,” begins today in Chicago!
We have a great line-up of plenary and focus session leaders, plus two bishops and an inspirational nun to lead us in prayer. And, most importantly, we have the energy of the hundreds of LGBT and Ally Catholics who will be attending the event, discussing the topics, sharing opinions, and networking with one another.
Your faithful bloggers, Francis DeBernardo and Robert Shine, are, of course, here at the event. Over the next few days, we will be busy with symposium activities, so we won’t be posting blogs about the event–yet. However, have no fear! Bondings 2.0 will continue through the weekend with posts on other topics.
Starting next week, we will begin posting information from the symposium itself, so stay tuned! For more information about the program, click here.
And if you are a member of the Bondings 2.0 community who is attending the symposium, please introduce yourselves to us at the event. We love to get real-time, in-person feedback from readers!
