For over four decades Quest has been the visible face of pastoral support for LGBT+ Catholics in England and Scotland. With approval from Cardinal Nichols, we continue to work towards a mutual understanding between the LGBT+ community and the wider church.
Quest maintains a network of local groups throughout the country. The groups offer a supportive fellowship of LGBT+ Catholics, their families and friends. They organise social events as well as opportunities for joint worship and spiritual retreats.
The Quest website and the regular bulletin provide information and an exchange of opinions about issues affecting LGBT+ Catholics, and supports the exploration of their roles in the Church.
On a national level, we organise an annual conference that brings LGBT+ Catholics from across the country for a long weekend of fellowship, reflection and stimulating input by well-known speakers.
