Courage is a Roman Catholic apostolate for men and women who experience same-sex attractions and those who love them. Website: https://couragerc.org/.
Philadelphia has its own local Courage chapter. Click here to view the website.
“In life, God accompanies persons,” Pope Francis says, “and we must accompany them, starting from their situation. We must accompany them with mercy.” The Courage apostolate is the Church’s invitation to people who experience same-sex attractions, who desire to live in accord with the Gospel call to chastity. A confidential support group led by a priest chaplain, Courage accompanies men and women along the road to integration, freedom and discipleship. EnCourage is a ministry within the Catholic Church dedicated to the spiritual needs of parents, siblings, children, and other relatives and friends of persons who have same-sex attractions. Standing by the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, EnCourage members support one another and their loved ones through discussion, prayer and fellowship.
