As the younger members of Dignity chapters around the country, we are the next generation of Dignity.
This year the DYAC retreat will be held in Denver, Colorado from July 13-15, 2018. After holding our last three retreats in the East and Midwest, we look forward to holding our next retreat in Denver at the University of Denver. As you know, this year is Dignity USA’s Jubilee year, and DYAC is bringing that into our retreat, with some focus on the present and future of Dignity and how the young adults can lead the future growth of Dignity.
This retreat is a time to strengthen the friendships we’ve forged over the years, renew our commitment to DignityUSA, and to grow personally. We’ll return to our home chapters and communities spiritually renewed in our faith and our fellowship, and ready to be a light and lead the way forward. More details, including our guest speaker and theme are to come.
Your registration to attend the retreat includes your room and board. You will be responsible for travel to the conference. If you need assistance with these costs please note such while registering.
Inspired by the Gospel of John, Jesus’ call to live in the truth (John 8:32) in order to have abundant life (John 10:10) will provide the focus for this retreat. Jesus invites us to pattern our ministry and our sexuality according to his embrace of truth. Embracing God’s truth, discovered in our deepest selves, both challenges and empowers us to live more authentically in every dimension of our lives.
Rev. Bryan Massingale, a professor of theology at Fordham University, will facilitate the retreat. Rev. Massingale is one of the world’s leading Catholic social ethicists and scholars of African-American theological ethics, racial justice, and liberation theology. A priest of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, Rev. Massingale served as president of the Catholic Theological Society of America and authored over eighty books and articles. He has led workshops on transgender topics at the Los Angeles Religious Education Conference and served as convener of the Black Catholic Theology Symposium. His book Racial Justice and the Catholic Church won first prize from the Catholic Press Association.
