What are the most common models of LGBTQ ministry and ministry for parents, their purpose, their advantages and disadvantages? How can one start a ministry in their parish? What are some principles of Doctrine and Pastoral Care that are helpful in this topic? How can we be more inclusive in our daily life? Join Yunuen as she addresses these and other questions.
