Each year the MSJC LGBT Initiative’s Retreat Committee plans and presents a weekend retreat for LGBTQ+ persons, their families, and allies. It is filled with opportunities for spiritual renewal, teachings of the faith, and time for building community, faith sharing, and fellowship; all with the LGBTQ+person in mind. This year’s theme, Bread for the Journey: Made* Blessed* Broken* Shared, will give us an opportunity to see how members of the LGBTQ+ community have experienced Church in their day to day lives: from their creation to the sanctity of life, through the reality of struggles and pain, and finally in recognition of our call to live the Gospel as members of the Body of Christ. We are thrilled to have Dr. Craig Ford as our keynote presenter as he imparts his wisdom of the intersection of sexuality and spirituality on each of us. We’re excited to have you join us for this grace (and fun) filled weekend!
