Watch: Catholic Pride Blessing Service
On June 1st, LGBTQI justice organizations from across the country are coming together to celebrate Pride Month. We're teamed up with the National LGBTQ Task Force, Human Rights Campaign, NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice, Faith in Public Life, the Women's Ordination Conference, the Tyler Clementi Foundation, and many more to host the Catholic Pride Blessing, an online prayer service that kicked off Pride Month on Tuesday, June 1st.
In the special event, we heard words of affirmation and blessing from LGBTQI activists, advocates, and allies from around the world:
- Mary McAleese, the President of Ireland, 1997-2011
- Dr. Miguel Díaz, the U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See, 2009 - 2012
- Bishop John Stowe, Catholic Diocese of Lexington, KY
True blessing doesn’t come from hierarchies of power; it comes from communities of care, love, and solidarity.
A special thanks to everyone who was able to attend! It was a real joy to kick off Pride Month with you. If you weren't able to attend you can find the video of the prayer service below.
