gay straight catholic alliance

I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
— Psalm 139

Come as you are! 

 We formed in 2012 with a vision is to “start from within and open the doors.” Our intent is to foster inclusive spiritual care for Catholic members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, questioning/queer, and straight ally communities.

We organize social outings, integrated activities throughout the various SFDS ministries, special performances, and co-hosted events with like-minded groups in NYC. The Gay Straight Catholic Alliance provides a a safe space for all orientations that make up our community at St. Francis.
