Friends and supporters,

Our next meeting will be Sunday, Nov. 22 at 1 pm, via Zoom conferencing. We are delighted to welcome as our speaker Sister Helen Marie Burns, RSM, Sister of Mercy of the Americas.

Sr. Helen Marie is a longtime advocate for LGBTQ+ rights, serving previously on the board of New Ways Ministry and speaking at various national conferences.  She has a doctoral degree in the history of religious thought in the USA and extensive history in congregational leadership for her Mercy community. At the November 22nd gathering, she will assist Families with Dignity members to unpack the Catholic tradition of sensus fidei and explore how this tradition relates to the primacy of individual conscience and the role of public dissent.
