Next Steps: Developing Catholic LGBTQ Ministry
A Multi-Part Online Series (now underway)
This series is designed to help parishioners, pastoral leaders, and church staff members figure out what form LGBTQ ministry should take in their community. The material will help parish community and staff members discern individually and together what the next steps should be to create a more welcoming pastoral environment for LGBTQ people—even if the next steps are your first steps.

A program of education, dialogue, and prayer about welcoming transgender people.
The goal of this program is to reflect on how we as Catholics can respond pastorally to transgender people. The program includes information on gender identity and development, pastoral outreach, and spiritual dimensions. No prior knowledge is needed. There will be Q&A sessions, small group discussions, and informational handouts.
