Welcome to Dignity Philadelphia

Dignity/Philadelphia was founded in 1973.  Our community is open to everyone of all faiths.  We are a community of people who believe that God made and loves us all and that God has called us all to share in the faith community, especially in the spiritual and sacramental life of the Church.  We believe that all people can express their sexuality in a manner that is consonant with Christ's teaching.
