Courage International, an apostolate for people with same-sex attraction, is preparing for its annual conference next month, which will focus on the importance of friendship.
The conference, for people who experience same-sex attraction and for the families of those identifying as LGBT, will be held July 18-21 at Mundelein Seminary, near Chicago. The theme of the conference is "Courageous Friendship: Inspiring Hope and Renewal."
Father Philip Bochanski, Courage's executive director, likened the event to a family reunion, where individuals may grow in a community that helps them in the pursuit of chastity.
"Every year, our Annual Conference often feels more like a family reunion than a conference. It's a special opportunity for our members to reconnect with old friends, and to form new friendships with those who understand their experience and their journey," said Fr. Bochanski.
