2020 Retreat (POSTPONED)

2020 Dignity Young Adult Caucus Retreat – POSTPONED

We are sad to announce that because of COVID-19, the 2020 DYAC retreat has been postponed until further notice. We will reach out to members with additional information on possible gatherings in person or virtually in the coming months. 

July 24-26, 2020
Indianapolis, Indiana

As the younger members of Dignity chapters around the country, we are the next generation of Dignity. Coming out of our Jubilee energized on what we can offer the future of DignityUSA, this is an opportunity to grow for ourselves and our communities.

Join us at the 2020 Retreat to connect with old friends, meet new friends, renew your commitment to or learn about DignityUSA, share stories, and grow personally. We’ll return to our home chapters and communities spiritually renewed in our faith and our fellowship, and ready to be a light and lead the way forward.

Please complete register today and share this opportunity. We appreciate early registration to ensure we have space and budget for everyone who wants to attend. Note that registration includes all meals for the duration of the retreat.

Please do not let financial burden keep you from attending our DYAC retreat. Thanks to the generosity of Dignity members and friends, we have scholarships available to help with registration and travel. Reach out or note your need when registering.

Donate to DYAC

Putting on the DYAC retreat takes a lot of resources of time and money. Our main goal is ensuring the retreat is accessible to any young adult who feels called to attend, regardless of financial ability. This is why we attempt to keep registration rates low and offer scholarships to anyone who requests.

We are looking to you to help us in putting on this retreat and providing this opportunity for LGBTQ Catholics. We are aiming to raise funds to cover the retreat expenses of lodging and food and travel scholarships. We ask for you to give what you can below to ensure the weekend is a nourishing experience for all attendees.
