Educate, Advocate, Ally and Serve.

A friendly and safe place for:

  • Parents to share stories and experiences with other parents of gay children
  • LGBT community to share stories and insights
  • Friends and allies to come together with the common goal of love, acceptance and support

We welcome all to explore and discuss issues surrounding sexuality, gender, and our faith in a safe and loving atmosphere. We will gather in prayer and support as we walk through our spiritual journey towards a deeper relationship with God. One in Love offers emotional and spiritual support to the LGBT community, family and friends during all of life’s moments.

One In Love hosts a listening session the 2nd Saturday of each month from 10-noon at Holy Family. Throughout the year we also offer a variety of events to provide education, explore and discuss issues surrounding sexuality and our faith, and to discover ways to serve our community.

All are invited! If you would like to attend or have any questions, please contact Chris Evon at:

2015 Informed Position Paper

From September 2014 to May 2015 a focus group worked to more fully explore all aspects of the Catholic teachings and policies on homosexuality and work collaboratively with invested parishioners, other parishes and informed resources to help the Catholic Church become more a more welcoming and inclusive community to all, regardless of sexual orientation or marital status.

In the spring of 2015 the focus group presented the position paper to Church leaders who were preparing for the family centered Synod in Rome which began in October of 2015.

Below are the materials, presentations, and the final position paper.
