|Description and Services|
|Description (Service)||Canada's organization of Roman Catholics who are concerned about the church's sexual theology, particularly as it pertains to gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender persons. * Collaborates with other Catholic organizations seeking reform in our church's leadership and teachings, and works within and without the Church to promote the full personhood of those whjo belong to sexual minorities. * Believes our loving relationships are intrinsically good, and worthy of recognition as marriage in civil law as well as in the eyes of God.
Participates in the activities of Call to Action, Catholic Organizations for Renewal, and the Coalition of Concerned Canadian Catholics, and publicly challenges bishops, and even the Holy Father, whenever these leaders preach hatred and discrimination of gay and lesbian people, or oppose their quest for full citizenship.
Operates local chapters in several Canadian cities where members come together for worship and social activities; our newsletter brings members news and editorials of interest to gay and lesbian Catholics.
