Gaudete: celebrating welcoming parishes, schools, communities, and people

The Catholic Community of St. Francis of Assisi

Raleigh, N.C.

Outreach Staff / February 10, 2023

Inspired by our patron Francis of Assisi, we seek to proclaim the reign of God by growing in Holiness through our experience of Christ in word, sacrament and one another, offering Hope to those who hunger for human dignity, and extending Hospitality to all.

For 23 years, the community has been a welcoming haven for LGBTQ+ people, family and friends. Now, it’s in a different role, as an incubator and resource for other parishes in the diocese of Raleigh that are starting their own outreach efforts.
