Parochial Vicar’s Perspective

According to a National Post Article from last week, the Federal Government has put in place an attestation requiring consent for organizations to receive summer grant funding for students. The attestation makes it mandatory applicants check a box saying they have a core mandate that respects “reproductive rights.” This means support for abortion.

The Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops released a statement on Thursday, January, 11th stating the attestation “seriously undermines the right to religious freedom since the Government of Canada is directly limiting the right of religious traditions to hold, teach and practise their principles and values in public.” 1

This attestation is indicative of how the Sexual Revolution has so influenced life in contemporary Canada.

Our Knight’s Council is planning an event to help us think through the moral and legal implications this revolution has caused in our society.

You are invited to a morning of informative, engaging presentations and conversation with Father Cristino Bouvette and Mr. John Carpay, (LLB) President of The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedom.

Father Cristino’s presentation “Reaping the Bitter Fruits of the Sexual Revolution” will explore how this philosophical movement has adversely affected contemporary life. Mr. Carpay will discuss how citizens can defend the civil liberties of all Canadians, including those who believe in Judeo-Christian sexual values enshrined within the Biblical Tradition.

We will begin with Mass at 8:30 AM on Saturday, February 3rd and end with lunch, provided, free of charge, by the Don Bosco Council. The event will conclude at 12:30.

To register please go to Reaping What You Sow

This event is open to men and women, and teens 14 plus.

Hoping to see you there,

Father Jonathan
Chaplain of Don Bosco Council.
