Why do we need Acceptance?


A fundamental challenge for most gay Catholics is reconciling their faith and their sexuality. Acceptance Sydney has both a personal and social dimension to assist with this by providing a safe, spiritual and social environment, through Acceptance.

The celebration of the Sacraments is central to our lives as Catholics. The Eucharist is a focal point of the Acceptance ministry through active participation in a weekly parish Mass.

In addition to this, Acceptance promotes social justice, fellowship and a Catholic identity for GLBT Catholics their family and friends

In a time when many homosexual and heterosexual Catholics are turning away from the Church, Acceptance's mission is to affirm the authenticity and dignity of GLBT Catholics in our church through liturgy, witness, and fellowship.
