Dignity/San Francisco is a self-governing faith community of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT+) members, Catholics, our families, and our friends, with a community based on and strengthened by the leadership and participation of our members. As a local chapter of DignityUSA, we serve LGBT+ Catholics in the San Francisco Bay Area and lend our support to other LGBT+ communities. We challenge ourselves to create a love-centered community that serves our members by:

† Promoting the spiritual development of LGBT+ people through inclusive celebration of the Word, the Eucharist, and other sacraments, scripture, personal and communal prayer, education, and active love of neighbor;

† Reinforcing the self-acceptance and dignity of LGBT+ Catholics by encouraging their full participation in the life of the church and society;

† Working for development of a holistic and inclusive understanding of sexuality in the church and for the acceptance of LGBT+ people as full, equal members;

† Providing social and recreational activities in an atmosphere where friendships and loving people can be affirmed;

† Working for justice and social acceptance for LGBT+ people through education, political action, and legal reform;

† We affirm and celebrate our sexuality and love as gifts from God.

† We are committed to living fully the sacramental life of the Church and to being responsible followers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
