Those with Same-Sex Attractions & Their Families

Courage is a spiritual support group helping Catholic men and women live in accordance with the Catholic Church’s teaching on same-sex attraction and/or behavior. Courage members strive to develop lives of interior chastity in union with Christ through participation in the Sacraments, prayer, fellowship and moral support. Courage meets in the Kansas City area weekly. 

EnCourage is a separate spiritual support group for family members and friends of loved ones with same-sex attraction. 


For information about meetings for either of these groups call the confidential Courage helpline 913-428-9893. All contacts are confidential.

COURAGE and ENCOURAGE can be of great support to you:
+ If you are struggling with same-sex attraction and want confidential Catholic help.

+ If your child is struggling with same-sex attraction and wants confidential Catholic help.

+ If your spouse, sibling or parent is dealing with same-sex attraction, and you are seeking confidential Catholic help.
