No good thing will the Lord withhold from those who walk with integrity. Psalm 84:11

INTEGRITY is a group of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered Episcopalians and their friends. We are a family within the church- a place to find close community and support. We offer an opportunity to find growth, education and prayer. We work with each other in service to the church and the gay community.

You may be a person who believes in God and wants to live a spiritual life. If you are lesbian, gay man, bisexual or transgendered individual, you may find if hard to be yourself in the Episcopal Church or to be Christian within your own community. If you are heterosexual, you may not recognize that difficulties exist for others or that you may have, in some way contributed to difficulties for others. If you want to do something, this is a place for us all to be Christians together.

There is a chapter of national INTEGRITY, INC. located in Rhode Island for Episcopalians in southeast New England. It is held at an Episcopal Church in North Providence, RI. Once a month, on the second Sunday afternoon, this group meets to pray, learn, dine and share in each other's lives as active Christians. Members bring potluck dishes to share with each other over discussions of church polity, religious devotion, news events, social issues, our patron saint Aelred of Rievaulx, ministry within and without of the community. Also, we support each others efforts to live fully within the teachings of Christ.
