Mary Kay Hunyady, RSCJ

Thank you for your interest in our virtual Pride celebration. Registration has now closed.

For the second year, New Ways Ministry again is hosting Catholic LGBTQ Pride with an interactive prayer service on Zoom. The event will take place on Sunday, June 13, 2021, at 3:00-4:00 p.m. Eastern U.S. Time.

The theme of this year’s event will be “From the Smallest of Seeds. . .”, which refers to the day’s gospel reading: Mark’s account of the parable of the mustard seed.

The scripture reflection will be offered by Mary Kay Hunyady, RSCJ, an openly lesbian religious sister, who has ministered as a high school and college teacher, a community organizer, and a psychologist.  She is a contributor to the newly-published anthology, Love Tenderly: Sacred Stories of Lesbian and Queer Religious. 

In addition to song, prayer, and reflection, the service will include a slideshow of photographs of Catholic LGBTQ activities which participants will be encouraged to share during the registration process for the event. Participants will be asked to create some visual message of peace to share during the sign of peace at the service’s conclusion, too.
