Compassion is a community of persons offering support and pastoral care to gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual Roman Catholics and their families and friends.  This ministry recognizes the Roman Catholic teaching that every person has an inherent dignity because he or she is created in God’s image.  Respect for the God-given dignity of all persons includes the recognition of basic human rights and the right to a place in the Christian community, without regard to sexual orientation.  Compassion gathers monthly in an atmosphere of trust and equality for prayer, sharing of experiences and planning community outreach, especially to the House of Ruth.  Recognizing God’s unconditional love for all people, and through open communication and spiritual formation, they work toward understanding each other with respect, compassion and sensitivity. 

Meetings are generally held on the last Monday of each month at 6:00 pm with prayerful meditation and a potluck meal.

Compassion also organizes 5th Sunday Special Collections for House of Ruth - items are collected at all weekend Masses (on 5th Sunday of the month weekends) for AIDS/HIV patients and families served by House of Ruth.  Needed items are listed in the bulletin the week before each 5th Sunday.
