PURPOSE: Dignity/NoVA's primary purpose is to sponsor a weekly mass in the Roman Catholic tradition for the local Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender community of Northern Virginia. In addition to establishing a nurturing community for worship, spiritual development, fellowship and education, we seek to provide a healing outreach to GLBT Catholics by affirming that all people are children of God; and we seek to be a prophetic witness of Jesus' teachings and message to the Church, to the GLBT community, and to society through the spiritually unique and individual experiences of GLBT persons.
We are honored that you are visiting our web site. Being a religious organization, we are always striving to find new ways to get our message out to current and prospective members. This web site allows us to reach people we may never have been able to contact before.
Please use this site to access the information you need about the church and as a resource for broadening your faith. We look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you might have. .
PASTORAL CARE: If you need confidential assistance, call the Dignity Center number (202) 546-2235 and select Box #2. You will be put in touch with the appropriate person. All calls are kept confidential. If you have need for pastoral counseling, contact any of our priests.
