About the Brochure
The brochure is intended to be given by a priest to someone in the confessional, or for sharing with a friend or acquaintance, who might be struggling with unwanted sexual behaviors. It is designed to help the recipient understand the possible nature of their behaviors, to inform them they are not alone, and to aid them with useful information and resources. It is well-researched, footnoted, and concise. It also includes a useful prayer on the back page, which is used in our chastity support group meetings.
We recommend to priests to share this information with anyone who might benefit from it, but also suggest to the recipient to fold it up and place it in a pocket or purse before leaving the confessional in order to protect their privacy.
We welcome any and all feedback on this brochure. This is our second draft and we are open to any improvements that may be possible.
You may download a free, customizable, press-ready, digital copy of the brochure below.

Customization and Printing
You will need basic computer and graphic design skills to modify and prepare the templates for printing. We printed the document through CatholicPrinting.org. Their prices were unbeatable and the quality of the finished product was very good. However, they do not provide ‘pre-press’ (graphic design) services, so you or someone you know will need to make sure the files are customized and ready for printing before sending them off to the printer.
By downloading the template on this web page you agree to hold harmless SDChastity, all its contributing members, their families, and all contributing organizations and their members should your brochure violate copyright or result in financial injury.

The two XCF files are compressed into a single ZIP file, which you may download by clicking the link below:
