You’re Invited: The Next Steps in Parish LGBTQ+ Ministry

Each day, Bondings 2.0 updates our readers on the latest Catholic LGBTQ+ news, opinion, and spirituality from around the world. Today, we offer some news closer to home: announcements from New Ways Ministry about an upcoming program and LGBTQ+ ministry employment opportunities.

Upcoming Workshop on Parish LGBTQ+ Ministry

Are you interested in starting an LGBTQ+ outreach ministry at your parish? Do you already have such a ministry and want to develop it further? How does somebody even start a conversation in a Catholic parish about welcoming and affirming LGBTQ+ people?

These are some of the questions that Francis DeBernardo, Executive Director of New Ways Ministry, will answer in the upcoming webinar, “New Ways and Next Steps: Developing Parish LGBTQ+ Ministry.” Francis will offer insights from his more than 30 years helping Catholic parishes, schools, and other institutions introduce and develop LGBTQ+ topics in their communities, as well as some of the wisdom he has gained from writing a guide to parish LGBTQ+ ministry published by Liturgical Press.

This interactive webinar will allow participants brainstorm some ideas for how they can explore this ministry journey in their home communities. The program is scheduled for Sunday, April 14, 2024, 4:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time, on Zoom.
