Spiritual Gems of Belgium and Germany

An LGBT-friendly Catholic pilgrimage

April 22-30, 2019

Sister Jeannine Gramick, the co-founder of New Ways Ministry and an advocate for LGBT people for close to 50 years, is leading an LGBT-friendly pilgrimage to Belgium and Germany.  The itinerary includes sites of spiritual, historical, and cultural significance.

This trip is Sister Jeannine’s 16th pilgrimage, and past participants have praised them for not only the amazing places they have visited, but for the spirit of community and friendship which develop on each journey.  Through daily Mass and occasional group sharing of experiences and perspectives,  participants have forged connection with one another that have lasted for years.

Trans-forming Love

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.
