Our Mission

By embracing the spirit of prophetic non-violence, we witnessed to our fellow World Meeting of Families (WMF) participants by… 

  • Having one-on-one conversations with a wide range of WMF participants 
  • Engaging the media 
  • Being a visible presence at WMF events, especially by distributing materials that affirm LGBTQ Catholics 
  • Witnessing through vigils or rallies with the message that we are all Equally Blessed 

The Equally Blessed World Meeting of Families pilgrimage is a project of the Equally Blessed Coalition.
