Group Description

Courage Online welcomes men and women who are experiencing same-sex attractions and who desire to live chaste lives in accordance with the Catholic Church's teaching on homosexuality. Membership is open to those 18 years of age and older. This group exists to provide a forum for sharing of personal experiences, mutual support and encouragement, and shared prayer. Many members of this group also belong to local chapters of Courage International, but this group also connects people from around the world who do not have a local chapter.


Courage International provides support and pastoral care to people who experience same-sex attractions (Courage groups) and their loved ones (EnCourage groups). The official positions and work of the apostolate are based on the Five Goals of Courage, the Five Goals of EnCourage, and the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church on homosexuality (cf. the Catechism of the Catholic Church, nn. 2357-59; the 1986 Letter on the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith; and the 2006 guidelines on Ministry to Persons with a Homosexual Inclination from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops).

This message board is an initiative of members of Courage and/or EnCourage for mutual support and discussion, and is not an official organ of Courage International. The content of any message posted here, including the opinions, advice or links contained therein, is the sole responsibility of the author(s) of the message. Such content does not necessarily reflect the views of Courage International, Inc., which takes no responsibility for the content of any message nor for any links directed to external websites.

3. If you wish to live chastely
