Welcome to Roman Catholic Caucus

The Roman Catholic Caucus of the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement is a networking, support and campaigning group for those who identify as Roman Catholic and are in sympathy with the aims of the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement.

Presentation Members of the Caucus meet regularly for conferences, discussion groups, lectures, worship and retreats in which lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered Catholics and their friends discuss their faith and celebrate the divine gift of their sexual orientation and gender identity.

The Caucus also plays a role in campaigning for legislative reform (for example, the Caucus took part in the DTI consultation process which led to the Civil Partnership Act 2004) and in raising the profile of sexual orientation and gender identity issues within the church.

Membership is open to all who support the LGCM Statement of Conviction, regardless of sexual orientation.

The LGCM Statement of Conviction

It is the conviction of members of the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement that human sexuality in all its richness is a gift of God, gladly to be accepted, enjoyed and honoured as a way of both expressing and growing in love, in accordance with the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. Therefore it is their conviction that it is entirely compatible with the Christian faith not only to love another person of the same sex but also to express that love fully in a personal sexual relationship.
