    What’s with the bias you have against the West Coast? San Francisco is very Catholic and very gay.

      We’d love to come to Philly for an event! If there’s something happening in that city that we are involved with — a talk, retreat, conference — we will organize a meetup to coincide with it. If you know of an event that we should be participating in, please let us know.

      For anyone that wants a Bondings 2.0 meetup in your area, please contact us at

    I hope one of thee days to see a member of New Ways Ministry in L.A. . As you probably know, the Los Angeles diocese has the largest Catholic membership in the USA (and in all likelihood the largest LGBT)
