East Midlands

We are an inclusive, informal group of people supporting each other to value and integrate our spirituality and sexuality. Anyone supporting the group’s purposes may join us: it is not necessary to be lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered or Catholic.

Forthcoming events for 2016

Our next event (and last for 2016) will be on Sunday 4th December at 6.30pm.  A group of us will be attending the traditional candlelit Service of Nine Lessons and Carols at St Nicholas’ Church in the heart of Leicester, the city’s oldest place of worship. (LE1 4LB)

We’ll probably grab a bite somewhere afterwards.

Get in touch if you want to know more.

Forthcoming events for 2017

We will be publishing more details soon but some of the events we’ve got planned for 2017 include a House Mass in Derby on 25th February, a day of reflection at Mount Saint Bernard Abbey near Coalville in May, attending Leicester and Nottingham Prides, and an early summer walk in Derbyshire.

Watch this space for updates or contact us by email to find out more about the group.

We also …

… meet often informally for meals, theatre, cinema, mostly in Leicester. Get in touch by email (eastmidlands@questgaycatholic.org.uk) for more information.

About us

We currently meet monthly. Most of our meetings are in Leicester, but our members come from across the East Midlands. Our meetings include house Masses and social events, day trips or watching movies of interest to our members. Occasionally we organise retreats and meetings with invited speakers. Some of us, living in Leicester, gather every Wednesday for Morning Prayer and breakfast at  7.15 am at members’ homes in the city. The Dominican community at Holy Cross Priory, Leicester, supports us when we have house Masses.

We are keen to make links with other LGBT Christian and multi-faith groups locally.

Information about the welcoming and inclusive Anglican parish of St Nicholas in the centre of Leicester can be found on their website: http://www.stnicholasleicester.com/
