Can you be lesbian, gay, bisexual,

transgender, queer or intersex…

          …and Catholic?

Yes! Many of us grew up Catholic or otherwise found ourselves in the Catholic tradition. And we also found ourselves LGBTQI. So about 50 years ago, we founded a community here in Denver for people like us. And we've been an advocate for integrating our spirituality and justice ever since.

We celebrate the authentic Catholic Mass with an ordained priest. We welcome people of every sexual orientation and gender identity, those who have divorced & remarried, and anyone who has felt excluded from other faith communities. We accept seekers from every faith background.

We welcome the gifts of each person at our door. And we welcome you.

We meet for Mass in Denver’s historic Capitol Hill neighborhood
1100 Fillmore Street, Denver CO 80206

Everyone is welcome!

Meli Barber, President of DignityUSA, and Marianne Duddy-Burke, Executive Director of DignityUSA, plan on being in attendance for both events. 


Looking for an LGBTQI-supportive online mass? We recommend Dignity New York who has a Zoom liturgy. See the worship aid at the bottom of the page. Dignity Washington shares its mass in a couple ways, including YouTube.
