Queering the Church blog by Terry Weldon

The 2nd Family Synod takes place in Rome in October. This is your unique opportunity to participate in it, if you did not submit something last year. It is true to say that the consultation process last year was unnecessarily complex and daunting. This time, there are submissions to our local parishes as well as to Rome. Individual as well as collective group submissions are encouraged. You can even just write in and avoid having to use the questionnaire provided. To make navigation around this sea of information that much easier, Terry Weldon from Queering the Church has written an invaluable blog. Please check out the links below and, more than anything, please do let the Catholic Church in England and Rome know about the reality of your life as a lgbt Catholic.
