The next is a media assertion from Lauren Bailey, Nationwide Discipline Organiser of Pax Christi USA, expressing our help for the group at The Nativity Faculty of Worcester, which confirmed solidarity with Black, Brown, and LGBTQ+ college students:
“The Nativity Faculty reveals the Catholic values of inclusion, justice, and solidarity with the oppressed and marginalised by displaying Delight and Black Lives Matter flags. The best way to peace with justice is thru public solidarity, and we’re happy with this group for his or her brave witness.
We’re gravely disenchanted that Bishop Robert McManus has chosen to sanction the varsity for its Gospel witness. Pax Christi USA strongly believes that communities like Nativity are modelling the Church we’re striving to create. Catholic colleges and all Catholic areas ought to be locations the place all oppressed individuals, together with LGBTQ+ college students and Black college students, are free to embrace and rejoice our identities and God-given dignity.”
