Families

Dignity/Chicago believes that families are life affirming.  We provide a safe, inclusive and welcoming place for families to practice their Catholic faith.  We welcome families of all sexual orientations--from singles and couples, families with children, parents of LGBT children and straight allies.  We offer a nursery for toddlers and infants.

Marriage, Baptism, Confirmation, Reconciliation and Anointing of the Sick

Dignity/Chicago affirms the sacramental character of same-sex committed relationships and marriages.  Because all sacraments are best celebrated in the context of a faith community, Dignity/Chicago asks that those wishing to celebrate a wedding, baptism or confirmation contact us at (312) 458-9438 or email us at [email protected] for details.

Wedding ceremonies may be celebrated at Broadway United Methodist Church or another site chosen by the couple.  The director of liturgy and music director are available for assistance in planning the ceremony.

Baptisms and Confirmation are usually celebrated in the context of Mass and Eucharist at Broadway United Methodist Church.

Anointing of the Sick and Reconciliation may take place before or after Sunday Mass or at one's bedside, if infirmed.
