conferencePacific Coast Hwy, Huntington Beach, CA Tuesday, June 14, 2016 at 12 noon A Church for Our Daughters is a grassroots campaign of 30 Catholic-rooted and justice organizations (see full list below) We are women and men, sisters and brothers, grandmothers and grandfathers, aunts and uncles, mothers and fathers, godparents — members of the Catholic community who are deeply committed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and who believe the Body of Christ must include all genders equally. We are calling on our Church leaders to work with us to build a Church that strikes down every oppressive practice, teaching, and law that assigns women and girls to a subordinate status. We call on our leaders to create a Church that is truly inclusive and alive with the gifts, spirit, and potential of all its members.
Catholics from across the country will gather for a landmark witness and procession for equality in our Church. They will speak out and pray for a Church for our daughters, a Church that is truly inclusive and fully alive with the gifts and spirit of all its members. The group will publicly proclaim “A Declaration for Our Daughters” and deliver a petition by the same name with thousands of Catholic signatures to the bishops. Carrying pink carnations and paper invitations, the group will personally invite our bishops to follow Pope Francis’ call to “dialogue fearlessly,” so that together we can build a church community where girls, women, and all who seek equality and justice are welcome. Participants will be wearing pink.(photo: conference)
