EnCourage is a Roman Catholic apostolate for parents, friends and family members of loved ones with same-sex attraction. EnCourage is a faithful witness to Catholic teaching on sexual morality which meets the needs of its members with charity and compassion. EnCourage does not embrace the necessity of changing a loved one’s sexual attraction to seek support from our ministry.
EnCourage helps members to focus on their own spiritual development with the goals of achieving peace and complete trust in God’s Providence and His love for us and for the ones we love. EnCourage offers a supportive, confidential environment to share feelings, experiences, information and guidance for maintaining healthy relationships with our loved ones with same-sex attraction.
