PEC: Show Your Love and Solidarity by Calling for a Change

We are calling for the immediate removal of Father Chisholm from St. Gregory The Great Roman Catholic Church.

Father Chisholm of St. Gregory’s in Picton, Ontario recently posted a bulletin on the church’s website telling Catholics and Christians that they should not attend Pride month events. The bulletin is below:

“A reminder that Catholics and all other Christians should not attend LGBTQ2 “Pride Month” events held this month. They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Christian faith and morals. This is especially harmful to the children because it could lead them away from God ...

Father Chisholm of St. Gregory’s in Picton, Ontario recently posted a bulletin on the church’s website telling Catholics and Christians that they should not attend Pride month events. The bulletin is below:

“A reminder that Catholics and all other Christians should not attend LGBTQ2 “Pride Month” events held this month. They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Christian faith and morals. This is especially harmful to the children because it could lead them away from God’s revealed Truth. Even in “The County” there are Pride flags and banners flying courtesy of the Government.

Think…these are your tax dollars at work!”

Not only is his statement factually inaccurate – the Picton Business Improvement Association (BIA) fundraised and paid for the Pride flags and installation – but the statement goes against what Pope Francis has repeatedly spoken about: the need for the Catholic Church to welcome and love all people regardless of sexual orientation. Father Chisholm is directly contradicting papal edict with this statement. With his message, he is promoting a dangerous and harmful culture of hate towards a group that is already marginalized.

The Prince Edward County community has mobilized their support at a rally that took place on Sunday, June 16th.

Now we are asking our community and those who care about LGBTQ2+ rights to take action that will help remove Father Chisholm from our community.

Send a letter to the Archdiocese of Kingston to ask for the immediate removal of Father Chisholm from St. Gregory The Great Roman Catholic Church now.
