Integrity Palm Beach
Integrity Palm Beach is a fellowship and service organization that promotes the inclusion of persons of all sexual orientations in the life of the church. Integrity sponsors worship services, educational programs, social events and outreach activities.
St. Andrew's is an inclusive parish, open to all. One does not need to be Episcopalian to participate in Integrity. An active chapter, Integrity Palm Beach meetings usually include 30-50 attendees, with people of all backgrounds and sexual orientations. The chapter believes that outreach and socializing are the best ways to advocate effectively for the LGBTQ community near and far.
In addition to monthly meetings, Integrity-Palm Beach is committed to moving the Episcopal Church and others forward in its goal of making the church more open and affirming of LGBT people, and ensuring that all of the sacraments are available to all the baptized. The group is involved in community service, and has donated time and talent to the Human Rights Campaign of Palm Beach County, The Farmworker Coordinating Council, Adopt-a-Family of the Palm Beaches, the Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship Fund, and the Angel Tree Project.
A note about non-endorsement:
Integrity Palm Beach and its host parish, St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, are non-profit groups grounded in this community. Integrity Palm Beach believes that giving local political leaders a forum benefits us all. That said, neither Integrity nor the church endorse political office-seekers or political parties. The appearance of a political office holder at an Integrity meeting should not be construed as an endorsement.
