Embracing God’s Gifts
Purpose & Practice
As members of the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church, we are called to celebrate and share the gifts of diversity of sexuality in our church today.
Our organization, Embracing God’s Gifts, has been formed as an instrument for recognizing these gifts and incorporating their goodness and use into the life of our parish.
Our mission is to create opportunities for the spiritual enrichment, support and inclusion of all diverse individuals, while being informed by church teaching, and to promote awareness and community building among them.
We will accomplish this through a variety of endeavors that foster support, communication and social activities. We invite all to participate in this group with open-mindedness and compassion.
You are invited to join members of our LGBTQ+ community on the bottom floor of the Parish Offices at 740 N. Calvert Street, Baltimore MD, 21202 on the second Sunday of each month at 11:15 AM.
This group is open to anyone interested in fostering support, engaging accompaniment, and encouraging spiritual/social/service-oriented activities among sexually and/or gender-diverse members of our parish and their family members/allies.
