The OECTA VP in Ottawa has announced as part of a lay sermon (euphemistically called “reflection”) that OECTA and St Joe’s will be marching together at Ottawa Capital Pride.
This is a first for Ottawa OECTA (units in Toronto, York, Bruce-Grey, etc etc have marched in Pride before). St Joe’s has been marching in Ottawa Pride for many years. We also know that at least one OCSB trustee marches in Pride.
St Joe’s is the mother church for OECTA teachers that actually attend mass (VERY few)
“One important aspect of my mission is my vocation- as a Catholic teacher. Next Sunday many of us Catholic teachers will be marching in the Capital Pride Parade under the banner of our Catholic teacher’s union. We will be joined there by many St. Joe’s parishioners too! We march to demonstrate that every student in our classrooms is welcome, valued and treasured for who they are- gay, straight, trans or questioning. We march in solidarity with those of us who are gay, proud of our Catholicity and assured of our place in the church. We march because our faith tells us that children must learn and come to know that they are wonderfully and uniquely made, in the image and likeness of God”
God will not bless Ottawa until Masses of Reparation are made for this. Masses by priests, bishops and Cardinals…

Saint Pope John Paul condemns Pride parades:
the Catechism (eg. CCC 2357-2359):
2357 Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,141 tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.”142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
2359 Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.
