We are Catholic parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, and siblings of LGBTQ people.
We are Catholic LGBTQ persons learning to integrate our identity and faith.
We are priests, deacons, church staff, and educators.
We are a family of unique, diverse hearts who are sharing this journey of love and faith.
A close-up photo of two hands gently cradling a paper heart painted with the colors of the rainbow flag, symbolizing LGBTQ+ pride. The hands are slightly cupped, providing a safe space for the heart, which conveys a message of care, acceptance, and love. The contrast between the dark background and the brightly colored heart draws attention to the symbol's significance. This image could represent support and solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community.

Fortunate and Faithful Families (FFF) was founded in 2013 to serve Catholic families in Atlanta, Georgia. With the approval and support of the Archbishop of Atlanta, we began to serve Catholic families in the metro Atlanta area and beyond. FFF offers support and education to persons who, like us, are seeking ways to love and honor both their children and their Catholic faith.  


Since the beginning, the fruits of Fortunate and Faithful Families attest to the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the miracles wrought by love: families reunited, relationships restored, faith strengthened, more compassionate parishes and clergy, and hope renewed.


If you are reading this, we know you are probably seeking support because your child has come out, you yourself have come out, or you want to better support LGBTQ people in your parish. We are here to be your soft place to land. We hope you’ll reach out to connect with one of our Listening Parents. We would love to welcome you to our family.

Our essential message is that of Jesus Christ: "Love one another."

Fortunate and Faithful Families is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit.
