Vine & Fig seeks to elevate the lives of Queer Catholics as we find beauty and power at the intersection of our faith and sexuality.

With a fully inclusive and affirming view of the LGBTQ+ community, we hope to inspire other Queer Catholics to more fully embrace the abundant life promised by Jesus, and witnessed in the lives of the saints, through embracing our God-given spirituality and sexuality, that our fruitfulness may be a witness to the worldwide Church.
