Dear Dignitas Readers,
The creation of Dignitas Magazine over a year ago came about during a unique season in our lives. At the time we were just two single girls working part-time jobs, available and eager to serve the Church in some way. In response to the urgent need we saw in our society for women to hear the message of their innate dignity and beauty, we (rather ambitiously) decided to pool our individual skills and availability and take a stab at producing an online magazine. We were blessed to encounter several other Catholic women in our local parish who were similarly disposed and who generously offered their time and talents to get Dignitas off the ground.
During this past year a great deal has changed in our lives and the lives of our staff. Many of us have moved on to new and more demanding seasons, thereby limiting our availability to create and produce new magazine issues. These new circumstances have brought Dignitas to a crossroads.
After prayerful discernment we’ve decided to put our quarterly production of Dignitas on hold.
We remain open to whatever God may have in store for the future of Dignitas, and as that future becomes more clear we will share details on our Facebook page.
We’ve always considered Dignitas to be a tool for God to use however He chose and for however long. Even if we are no longer able to produce Dignitas we hope that our small efforts might “plant some seeds” and encourage our readers to use their unique talents to serve the Church in the particular way they feel called. Be assured, Christ is eager to work beautiful things in His Church through His faithful!
Finally, to everyone who has supported Dignitas this past year with their time, talent, treasure and—above all—prayers, we offer our humble thanks.
Catherine & Abby Pelicano
