Paul Darrow is one of many individuals who have been impacted by the Courage apostolate, which provides a much-needed spiritual support system and assists men and women with same-sex attractions in living chaste lives in fellowship, truth and love. Paul has shared his story across the country, and he was recently featured in the film "Desire of the Everlasting Hills." As we begin a Courage/Encourage chapter here in the Archdiocese of Portland, Paul's testimony is an opportunity to learn more about how this ministry can bear fruit in our local church. To that end, while the presentation is open to all, we do encourage clergy, pastoral staff and key volunteers to attend, so they may share the word about Courage in their parishes.
Event includes talk and then time for Q&A and discussion.

More about Paul Darrow:
Since his adolescence, Paul Darrow’s world travels, glamorous careers and ties to high society have given him invaluable insight about many aspects of the alternative lifestyle. Several days after graduating college, Paul moved to Manhattan where he became an international fashion model. Shortly after his recent conversion and at his very first public speaking engagement, Paul was surprised to find himself sharing the lectern with esteemed university presidents, political figures, priests and producers of award-winning films. Just two months later, he was being filmed as one of the subjects of the movie Desire of the Everlasting Hills, which has since been distributed to the bishops at the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops. He has appeared as a guest for Catholic radio interviews and has recently been filmed for a special on Catholic television. Whether giving presentations to young adults in church family life centers, to private organizations in university settings, to inmates in state penitentiaries or to clergy and seminarians in convent retreat houses, Paul shares his unusual testimony in order to be a living example that God’s grace is always at work and is more powerful than even the greatest of human weaknesses.
