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.
