Statement of Position and Purpose

We believe that gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex Catholics in our diversity are members of Christ's mystical body, numbered among the People of God. We have an inherent dignity because God created us, Christ died for us, and the Holy Spirit sanctified us in Baptism, making us temples of the Spirit, and channels through which God's love becomes visible. Because of this, it is our right, our privilege, and our duty to live the sacramental life of the Church, so that we might become more powerful instruments of God's love working among all people.

Leadership Academy


The DignityUSA Leadership Academy is a 10-month program designed to support the work and promote the skill development of individuals who are considering service to Dignity national in a variety of capacities.  Many people step into leadership roles, voluntarily or “voluntold”. Feeling unprepared for the role, they brace for learning along the way.  This program is intended to provide people with basic tools, organizational context, wisdom from mentors and access to a network of other servant leaders.

Vision Statement

DignityUSA envisions and works 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.

Mission Statement

DignityUSA works for respect and justice for people of all sexual orientations, genders, and gender identities—especially gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons—in the Catholic Church and the world through education, advocacy, and support.
