The local chapter of Courage, a ministry of the Archdiocese of Louisville, is offering confidential spiritual support-group meetings for Catholic men and women with same-sex attraction.
The ministry, an offering of the Archdiocese of Louisville’s Family Ministries Office, is meant for those who wish to live chaste lives consistent with the church’s teaching.
A companion ministry called EnCourage is also available in the archdiocese. This ministry is dedicated to the spiritual needs of parents, siblings, children, other relatives and friends of those experiencing same-sex attraction. EnCourage members offer support to one another and their loved ones through discussion, prayer and fellowship. This ministry is also confidential.
