Drachma is a space open to all persons of good will who seek sexual and spiritual integration. It includes lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgendered and intersex persons, as well as friends of LGBTI persons who wish to meet to pray together and explore the intersections between sexuality, gender, gender identity, faith, spirituality and religion.
Our next meeting will be held on Thursday 17 January 2019 with the participation of both the Parents and the LGBTI members. This meeting will replace the habitual LGBTI meeting on the third Friday of the month. The meeting will focus on Drachma's experience as a community of LGBTI+ persons and Parents of LGBTI+ Persons and our pastoral outreach throughout last year. The meeting will be facilitated by the Steering Committee, with the special participation of Fra Gwann Xerri OP.
Members and non-members are all welcome to attend.
The meeting will be held at Mount Saint Joseph at 7.30pm.
To help make sure that the lives and concerns of Catholic LGBTQI and ally young people are addressed at the Vatican’s Synod on Youth in October 2018, the Global Network of Rainbow Catholics is co-sponsoring a global effort to make it easy for those under 30 years old to tell their stories to the bishops who will be their delegates.
The project is called “Equal Future” and it provides an online tool for youth to communicate directly with the bishops who will be representing them in Rome next month. Young people can write their personal stories, upload them along with information about their geographic location to the Equal Future website, and the stories will be emailed to their bishop delegate(s).
Time is critical! The synod begins on 3 October and runs until 28 October. So please share this information quickly and widely.
