Catholic Allies is a nonprofit organization devoted to empowering Catholics and Non-Catholics to learn from the knowledge, skills, gifts, and experiences of a diverse array of insightful speakers, usually in the form of short, powerful talks about being BOTH a Catholic AND an Ally to LGBTQ+ individuals.
If you've been around the Catholic community for a while, you might see a few familiar faces at our meetings. You will probably hear a few last names that ring a bell of a family that has been in the Indianapolis Catholic scene for generations. You will definitely be welcomed by a community of people with a shared call to nurture and embrace the mentality of being both a Catholic and an Ally in their own daily lives.
If you are a Non-Catholic, former Catholic, agnostic, atheist, or something in-between - you will be welcomed with love. Our community of full of people actively looking to make a meaningful impact through a more inclusive and constantly growing worldview. Our meetings are meant to provide a safe space for all of our attendees to learn, grow, and feel connected by community.
No matter who you are, we welcome you to come as you are.
A special message from Fr. James Martin SJ about our November 8th event.
Catholic Allies has been dedicated to creating a positive impact since 2022, offering practical resources and evidence-based education on crucial topics relevant to being a loving supporter of LGBTQ+ individuals while using their platform to champion other like-minded organizations both locally and globally. By attending a Catholic Allies event, you're not just embracing a deeper sense of love for all individuals within your own life, but you're also actively shaping a brighter future and more inclusive community for all people.
Our organization is funded entirely through donations. 100% of funds received are directly inserted back into the organization to further our programing efforts (renting event venue spaces, booking expert speakers, ensuring our events always have at least one bar, etc). Our annual report will be made publicly available this fall to provide further transparency on how donations have been used since the organization was founded last year.
