About the Presentation
Gender. Transgender. Non-binary. Transition. The gender revolution is here, bombarding our children with confusing messages about who they are—and creating heartache and concern for parents.

What does it all mean? Is it influencing your child? Why are so many children “coming out” as trans or non-binary? Should you be worried? How should a Catholic respond? What should you tell your child?

Come hear a dynamic presentation on the gender agenda – its impact on our language, relationships, faith, and self-understanding – and the Church’s response. Come away with a clear picture of the gender revolution, a renewed understanding of Catholic teaching, and the confidence to answer your children’s questions.
