The DignityUSA Board of Directors has a duty to care for and protect the members of our entire organization whether they are children or adults. In light of the global failure of the leadership of Roman Catholic Church - to properly address sexual victimization of children by adults – particularly priests-- we see the need to focus on our responsibilities to those among us who are survivors of sexual abuse.
Breath of the Spirit is our electronic spiritual and liturgical resource for our members and potential members. Nothing can replace your chapter or other faith community but we hope you will find further support here for integrating your spirituality with your sexuality and all the strands of your life.

As a member organization of the Catholic Organizations for Renewal, DignityUSA issues this statement alongside our sister member orgranizations.
We, the undersigned members of Catholic Organizations for Renewal (COR), are outraged by and unequivocally condemn the violent storming of the United States Capitol that we witnessed on January 6, 2021. At the same time, as faithful Catholics, we lament the U.S. Catholic community’s complicity and participation in fostering an environment that encouraged and enabled such violence.
