Dignity Detroit to Celebrate 42 Years This May

ROYAL OAK -- Dignity Detroit, the nonprofit 501(c)(3) serving LGBT Catholics since 1974, celebrates its anniversary this year with a dinner dance under the theme "Companions in Faith."

The organization is a faith community of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Catholics, their families and friends who unite to celebrate God's love for all persons. They are a community rich in diversity that worships in an affirming and supportive setting. Dignity Detroit says, "Ours is a ministry that speaks to us by offering an expression of faith and fellowship not experienced in other church situations. In this way, Dignity has helped many who have lost touch with the church to reaffirm and establish a relationship with God. Dignity envisions and works for unity, equality and an end to all forms of hatred. Most importantly, we are devoted to nurturing faith and love through Christ, the Sacraments and one another."

The dinner dance will be held Saturday, May 14 at Park Place, 23400 Park St., Dearborn. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. for cocktails. Dinner will follow at 7 p.m. Tickets begin at $50 and include an open bar, buffet dinner, a short program and dancing; tables of eight can be purchased for $350. The event will also feature a silent auction.

No tickets will be sold at the door, and the deadline for ticket sales is May 1. Tickets may be purchased before and after the 6 p.m. Sunday mass at Marygrove College's chapel, or by mail. To receive tickets by mail, send a check for the amount of tickets to be bought and contact information to: Dignity Detroit, P.O. Box 558, Royal Oak, MI 48068-0558.
