Join FutureChurch as we begin our pride month series with a presentation from feminist theologian, Mary E. Hunt, Ph.D.

Members of the LGBTQ+ community and women continue to be among the most excluded and marginalized people in the Catholic Church. How can feminist and queer theology mutually inform and strengthen each other? And how can members of these two communities work together to secure their rightful place in the life of the Church? Join FutureChurch as we welcome feminist theologian, Mary E. Hunt, Ph.D. for what promises to be an important and insightful presentation.
