2SLGBTQpastoralcare.ca is a group of volunteers from many Christian traditions seeking to make access to safe, supportive pastoral and spiritual care more readily available in Canada. We are based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and sponsored by the Anglican Diocese of Rupert's Land and the Lutheran Manitoba/Northwestern Ontario Synod.Our volunteers include clergy from several traditions: Anglican, Lutheran, Mennonite, and United Church of Canada.We are committed to holding our 2SLGBTQ+ siblings in prayer, speaking out for their rights, security, and health, and to supporting them as we are able. We believe that all people are made in the image and likeness of God and all people are to be honored and cherished for the divine reflection they bear.We are not mental health professionals and are here to offer spiritual and pastoral care. We will do our best to refer people who need resources beyond our capacity to the correct providers.
As many of you as were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3.27-28)
