Faithful Catholics committed to full equality for LGBT people in the church and civil society
Tell your bishop: Listen to our family
Fired by a vision of a church that transcends cultural prejudices, the Equally Blessed coalition seeks to educate and inspire Catholics to take action on behalf of LGBT people, their families and friends.
November 17, 2014. Members of Equally Blessed, a coalition of Catholic organizations committed to equality and justice for LGBT people, sent the following letter to Archbishop-Designate Cupich congratulating him on his upcoming installation as Archbishop of Chicago:
Dear Archbishop-Designate Most Rev. Blase J. Cupich,
November 14, 2014: As the U.S. Catholic bishops met in Baltimore this week, they discussed the synod on marriage and family that took place in Rome last month. That meeting sent shockwaves around the globe because of the frank discussion of birth control, cohabitation, divorce and remarriage, and, perhaps the biggest stunner of all, LGBT people.
