Equal Future Campaign


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.

This Friday's meeting will be dealing with the story of the Centurion who pleaded with Jesus to heal his servant. We have often heard this story and we always admired the Centurion's faith in Jesus. Yet, is that all that the story tells us? What about the relationship between the Centurion and his servant? Was it a 'normal' owner-slave relationship? What did the servant really mean for the Centurion. Friday's meeting will be exploring this theme from a Queer perspective.

Friday's session will also be interesting for another reason. A yoga teacher, Jonathan Orchard, has offered to guide us through the basics of yoga and conscious breathing. It will be a great opportunity to relax and learn new ways of being!

So we look forward to seeing you!
