We Believe That …

  • We are all made in God’s image and that God rejoices in our diversity: man or woman, straight or gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender or questioning.
  • Same-gender relationships, including marriage, are a gift from God, and not something to be suppressed or be kept in the closet
  • People of all genders, gender identities, and sexual orientations are called to serve and to lead in the Church
  • That we are Catholics by Baptism and by God’s will, and no one can deny our place as God’s children

Mission: Dignity/Chicago is a chapter of Dignity/USA, and shares its mission to work for respect and justice for all gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender persons in the Catholic Church and the world.

Vision: As independent organizations created to support LGBT Catholics and our families and friends, DignityUSA and Dignity/Chicago envision and work for a time when Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Catholics are affirmed and experience dignity through the integration of their spirituality with their sexuality, and, as beloved persons of God, participate fully in all aspects of life within the Church and Society. We minister through education, advocacy and worship and believe that same-sex relationships are loving, life-giving and life-affirming. We open our doors to all and welcome you to join us.
