Who we are
We believe that gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender 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 We work for justice and equality through education and by supporting social and legal reforms.
We reinforce each person's sense of self-acceptance and dignity and encourage full participation in the life of the Church and society.
Bilingual Mass/Misa Bilingüe
DignityDenver celebrates the first Mass of each month with a bilingual liturgy featuring Spanish and English. Misa Bilingüe cada 1er Domingo de mes.
Aligning strongly with our mission is the work we do to be inclusive and shed oppression within our own organization. Toward this end, we celebrate Black History and National Hispanic Heritage Months.
We also continue these efforts through our monthly bilingual liturgy. There is something deeply enriching about experiencing the Mass in the language of one’s heritage, even if you are fluent in English. There is also something deeply welcoming from this experience that opens the door to full participation.
For non-Spanish speakers, it is an opportunity to enlarge one’s circle of awareness and acceptance of others; an experience from which we can all grow and ensure that God’s love becomes visible. Everyone who joins us for the liturgy and/or our activities has experienced some form of oppression throughout their lives. Some experience this more so than others due to the color of their skin, the language they speak or their heritage.
