LGBT Mission Statement:

In accordance with our parish mission statement, we reach out to provide spiritual nourishment for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people and their families and friends. We seek to affirm the intrinsic value and self-worth of all people and to welcome them into full participation in the faith community. All LGBT people are welcome.

We also welcome friends and family of LGBT people and anyone who might be questioning what it means to be a supportive Catholic for LGBT parishioners. Whatever your religious tradition, please know you are welcome to pray and worship with us.

Diocesan Young Adults
“Our purpose is to put Catholic young adults 18-39, single and married, in touch with each other and with the Church. We strive to develop and strengthen relationships with Christ, with one another, and with the wider community by offering spiritual, social, and service opportunities, along with vocation and relationship education. Our programs offer an alternative to the lifestyle experienced in our culture.”
