Imago Dei Assembly - Sponsorship Opportunities

The LGBTQ+ Initiative of the Marianist Social Justice Collaborative, a sponsored effort of the Marianist Family of North America, is delighted to host Imago Dei: Embracing the Dignity of LGBTQ+ Persons, an assembly for the Catholic LGBTQ+ community. Imago Dei aims to celebrate the 50th anniversary of a 1974 groundbreaking conference centered on LGBTQ inclusion and ministry which was held in Dayton at the Bergamo Center. We hope to honor those who foresaw the importance of developing pastoral care and outreach, and to envision how we can continue to respond to the needs of the LGBTQ+ community within our Church and world. 

At Imago Dei, theological and pastoral leaders will share insights gained, as well as to consider challenges encountered in their own roles to advance justice for the LGBTQ+ community within the Church and broader society. Facilitated roundtables, small group discussions, prayerful reflection, and opportunities for networking will be key features of this assembly. Imago Dei will utilize all of the beautiful Mount Saint John property, over 150 acres of grounds which includes nature trails and a labyrinth under the care of the Marianist Environmental Education Center

The planning team recognizes that other Catholic organizations and individuals appreciate ministry to and with LGBTQ+ individuals, allies and their loved ones, especially in response to Pope Francis’s explicit call for inclusivity.  So, we are inviting you to support Imago Dei with your prayers and with a financial contribution. Thank you for your consideration.
