Early in July 2008, Operations Manager Peggy Burns opened an email from the Director of Religious Education at a California parish. The woman was seeking assis- tance for a mother and son, members of her parish, who were going on retreat together. The son had recently come out as transgender.
The writer said she had identified some appropriate Scripture passages, and had found the Beatitudes of Dignity on our website, but was seeking other resources for them—and of course, she was on a tight timeline. Peggy did some research and within a day found the website http://www.transfaithonline.org. The inquiring director felt this was a great resource, and expressed gratitude for the assistance Peggy had provided.
