The Person and Identity Project provides formation, resources, and pastoral guidance to parents, educators, ministers, and Catholic institutions on issues of faith, “gender,” and sexual identity.
The mission of the Person and Identity Project (PIP) is to assist the Catholic Church in promoting the Catholic vision of the human person and responding to the challenges of gender ideology. Gender ideology has permeated the culture with stunning speed, influencing medicine, business, media, entertainment, government, and education. Because it is sowing confusion and undermining the Church’s mission of evangelization, the rise of gender ideology has created an urgent need for clarity, education, and compassionate guidance for Catholic families and young people. The Person and Identity Project is committed to assisting the Church in meeting these needs. PIP is a collaborative effort, coordinated by a leadership team that has decades of individual experiences in education, seminary formation, non-profit leadership, and apostolic service. The Person and Identity Project (PIP), which began in 2016 as the Catholic Women’s Forum Gender Project, is an initiative of the Catholic Women’s Forum at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, and is funded in part through the generosity of the Our Sunday Visitor Institute. The Ethics and Public Policy Center is non-profit, tax-exempt 501© (3) organization.
