Universally, the Catholic Church is leading the move beyond the homosexual labelling of the faithful to a more complete identity in Christ.  COURAGE is a Roman Catholic apostolate to same-sex attracted individuals, who want to live chastely in their fellowship, truth, and love as disciples of Jesus Christ.   ENCOURAGE is a Roman Catholic Apostolate for parents, friends, and family members of loved ones with same-sex attraction. 

Both COURAGE and ENCOURAGE are a faithful witness to Catholic teaching on sexual morality, which continues to meets the needs of the faithful with charity and compassion.  It offers a prayerful, confidential environment to share feelings, experiences, information and guidance.  If you, or someone you know, loves and embraces their faith and has same-sex attraction, you do not have to feel confused or isolated any longer.  Be welcomed by a group of committed Catholics, who understand your struggles and who will walk and pray with you on your journey.
