Given the news that WE.org refuses to say that they don’t publicly support abortion, contraception etc, the following Boards have EXPLICIT fundraising and/or partnership policies that forbid partnership with WE Day.  They all refer to the tenets or teachings or moral teachings of the CATHOLIC CHURCH (ie, not the students or the Board or the union)

Where funds are raised or actions are taken on behalf of organizations, groups, or individuals, schools must be diligent in ensuring that the activities of the organization are consistent with the teachings of the Church and with Catholic moral principles. Areas of particular concern include the dignity of all persons, the common good, human rights and responsibilities, social justice, stewardship for creation, embryonic stem cell research, cloning and some forms of gene manipulation,. Groups engaged in such activities should consult the information and guidelines available on the website of the Board’s Social Justice Committee at…

Embryonic stem cell research is forbidden:

Does Cardinal Collins approve of We.org vs some great Catholic organizations???

 

In entering such partnerships, schools and boards are asked to apply the
following principles appropriately, with due diligence and with application to all
operations, in Canada or abroad, of the potential partner:
a) The basic tenets of Catholic social teaching, namely, the dignity of the human person,
human rights and responsibilities, the common good, solidarity, subsidiary, the preferential option for the poor, respect for life and the value and dignity of human work must all be respected.
b) With regard to the application of these principles boards are requested to look at other models available in the Catholic community, involve other Catholic groups and their diocesan bishop.

One thought on “WE.org is banned by the policies of 7+ Ontario #Catholic School boards #prolife”

  1. This is good to see and report … but let’s see what these boards (with the exception of Halton) do about it. (D-P Catholic supported it in my time there.)
