The LGBT Catholic community has always been a pilgrim community, with various identities linked to its developing life, mission, and ministry. 

From the days of its sponsorship by the Roman Catholic Caucus at Centrepeace Convent in 1999, to St. Anne's Soho in 2003, and Our Lady of the Assumption & St. Gregory, Warwick Street, with its Soho Masses identity, it has journeyed onwards, echoing Pope Francis' words that 'the status quo is not an option'. 

Now based at Farm Street Jesuit Church, as LGBT Catholics Westminster, we celebrate our communion with each other, the local Church of Westminster, and the Church universal, giving witness in the 2014 Pride Parade that 

ALL ARE WELCOME ! 


We look forward to journeying together, sharing our stories, as we continue along this path of ongoing growth and development.

The LGBT Catholics Westminster Pastoral Council, mandated by Cardinal Vincent Nichols to provide pastoral support for LGBT Catholics, parents and families, was welcomed into membership of the European Forum of LGBT Christian Groups on 23 May 2015. The event took place during the European Forum's Annual Conference, held at Merville, France, over Whit-weekend, and attended by some 250 people.

 

The European Forum of LGBT Christian Groups is an ecumenical network of some 47 groups throughout Europe, including fast- developing activity in Eastern Europe. The 2nd Catholic pre-conference in the Forum's history was held ahead of the main conference, reflecting the explosion of  LGBT support activity in the Church in various European countries.

 

The Catholic Co-President of the European Forum - Michael Brinkschroeder from Munich, Germany - announced the launch of the Global LGBT Catholic Network. This will take place at a foundational meeting, LGBT Voices to the Synod, to be held in Rome from 1-4 October 2015, the opening weekend of the Catholic Bishops Synod on Marriage & Family, convened by Pope Francis. 12 Catholic LGBT- related groups from Africa, Eastern and Western Europe, Latin America, and the USA ,have worked together to initiate this new alliance of LGBT Catholics, their parents, friends, and allies. Further information will be available shortly from the LGBT Catholics Westminster Pastoral Council.
