I am so grateful for FFF and their impact on my life. They not only gave me my faith back but, most importantly, a relationship with my daughter, my great gift from God!
[LGBTQ persons] have a right to be a part of the family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable because of it....What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered.
Light of Hope - three words that best describe what FFF was and is for me. Light that shows me God’s love in my journey as Cara’s dad. And the hope our Church would someday welcome and pray alongside every child of God, with the hope my daughter will accept the invitation"
When our teen came out as gay, it was a blessing to find a local organization created for people in our exact situation. Not only have my husband and I benefitted from meeting other Catholic families with gay children, but our child has been able to connect with other gay Catholic teens. As a result, we have all found a place of love and welcome thanks to FFF. And isn’t that what we all want? We are incredibly grateful for FFF.
The ministry of Fortunate and Faithful Families was inspired by the Holy Spirit and its fruits have attested to God's hand in all of this. We have witnessed healing within families, the arms of the church slowly but surely widening in welcome for all, deeper compassion, faith and understanding among our members, and a caring community like no other. Truly, all things are possible with God!
