How Catholic Are You?

From D/USA:  Did the deadline for the "Catholicism Dignity Style" survey slip past you? Did you think this was the Synod on Family survey you completed last fall? Did you start the survey but didn't get a chance to complete it? We've heard all of this from our members, and decided to give folks another couple weeks to participate!

We will be using this survey to see how Dignity members and friends compare to other U.S. Catholics in how we practice our faith, and what elements of Catholicism mean the most to us. It will also help the Board and staff develop new ways to respond to our members' needs. Make your voice heard! Take the survey before April 16, 2014!


Thank you!

Dignity/Northern Virginia

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.


Dignity Washington sponsors a mass for the GLBT community each Sunday night at 6:00 pm at St. Margaret's Church, 1830 Connecticut Ave., NW (Dupont Circle Metro).
