Mission Statement

Dignity/Northern Virginia (Dignity/NoVA) is a welcoming community of LGBT Catholics, our families and friends, with a common mission to: establish a nurturing community of worship, celebration, ministry, spiritual development, education, and fellowship; provide a healing outreach to LGBT Catholics by affirming that all people are children of God; and, be a prophetic witness of Jesus’ teachings and message to the Church, to the LGBT community, and to society through the unique and individual spiritual experiences of LGBT persons.


The primary purpose of Dignity/NoVA is to sponsor a weekly Mass in the Roman Catholic tradition for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community, their family and friends, in the local Northern Virginia area.  Weekly Mass takes place on Saturday evenings, at 6:30 PM, at Immanuel Church-on-the-Hill, 3606 Seminary Road, Alexandria, VA 22304.
