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 Annual (London) Pride Parade that ALL ARE WELCOME !
We look forward to journeying together and sharing our stories, as we continue along this path of ongoing growth and development.
Our community is welcoming and open to all Catholics, with an active fellowship of many lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered Catholics, as well as their parents, families and friends.

We hope to see you soon!
