Wanted to share something a little different for anyone in this group in the Chicagoland area.
The LGBTQ group of the Peace & Justice Ministry at St. Mary Immaculate Parish in Plainfield is celebrating our second annual Mass of Acceptance. Yes, your eyes do not fail you, our church has a devoted group of parishioners who are Allies hoping to welcome our LGBTQ brothers and sisters and their families. Our ministry stands in support of those the church has traditionally marginalized and seeks to bring back a sense of peace and sanctuary to those who have moved away from the church because they’ve been shamed or shut out.
The mass is on Sunday, October 22, 2023 at 4 pm at St. Mary Immaculate in Plainfield, IL followed by a reception and fellowship.
We would love to see members of this community join us or spread the word. If any are not sure about joining us or feeling a little wary - please know: you are safe, you are loved, and you belong.
