As lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersexed persons of faith, together with our families and friends, we form a small faith community with regional and national connections in the struggle for justice in church and society. Dignity-Integrity/Rochester (D-I/R) was chartered in 1975 as the first combined chapter of the national organizations of Dignity/USA (Roman Catholic) and Integrity, Inc. (Episcopal).
Many of us call D-I home, feeling unwelcome, unsafe or unaffirmed in our home churches. All of us belong as a prophetic challenge to those in authority and as a ministry to those who have felt wounded or abandoned by organized religion. Our fellowship is a vital witness to all that our lives and loves are whole and holy.
We are celebrating 39 years of Dignity-Integrity this year and we welcome you to join us. Save Sunday, October 12th for a service and dinner at a local restaurant. We’re also hoping to have host a Fall Cabin Party, possibly in early November, presumably before the snow starts flying again! Details for both events will be posted on the website soon. You can also call the Hotline at 585-234-5092 for more information.
