March 2012 Dateline
For us these two days were enlightening and challenging. We were impressed at the work . . . organizations committed to the human/social rights of transgender persons and their families. We were saddened as we heard personal testimony of the suffering experienced by many in the transgender community, and amazed at their determination to move forward. We left enheartened, hoping to find ways to support Catholic ministry in its contribution to the healing and growth of these gifted, and often vulnerable, members of the body of Christ. These were days of great grace for us.
