A Catholic Perspective

As a Catholic university, Villanova respects the dignity and sacredness of each person. The University’s Mission Statement affirms that we “seek to nurture a concern for the common good” and “an enthusiasm for the challenge of responsible and productive citizenship in order to build a just and peaceful world.” Towards that end, all people, including people attracted to members of the same sex, are deserving of pastoral care. All of us need the redemptive love of Christ. Pastoral care puts its focus here for all of us. Love of neighbor, of all neighbors, is a Gospel demand in accord with which all of us will be judged.

How to Join?

To join in helping the GSC achieve its goals, please feel free to contact Kathy Byrnes via email or at 610-519-4550. Emails may also be sent directly to gay-straight@villanova.edu.

How Can You Get Involved?

The GSC is open to all students interested in helping the group achieve its goals. We believe that homophobia is best overcome through the collaboration of both gay and straight people working together.

The GSC offers numerous programming opportunities to the campus community to inform, as well as change, attitudes regarding homosexuality. While always looking for innovative ideas from current and new members, some of the programming includes: panel discussions, guest speakers, movies, and programs in the residence halls.

Please consider joining to share your ideas!
