The Courage apostolate to those with same-sex attraction will hold its 29th annual conference this July at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.
"It's our major event of our year to gather our Courage family together and just be renewed by fellowship with one another, by prayer in common, and by good speakers who revitalize our desire for holiness and for growing in friendship with the Lord," Father Philip Bochanski, associate director of Courage International, told CNA.
Courage, founded in 1980, aims to help Catholics with same-sex attraction in their spiritual growth, including life in chastity. Its partner organization EnCourage is an apostolate for parents, friends, and family members those with same-sex attraction.
The July 21-24 conference will feature Masses, speeches, workshops, personal testimonies, and social events for attendees. There will be opportunities for Eucharistic Adoration and confession.
