Will Your Catholic Parish Live The Gospel Message Of Inclusion On Spirit Day?
Note from GLAADRoss Murray, Director of News and Faith Initiatives at GLAAD
This October, cities across the globe, professional sports leagues, major corporations, schools and hundreds of community organizations will raise awareness about the negative impact of bullying by participating in Spirit Day. With this in mind, and in embracing Catholicism’s social teaching, please consider taking a public stance against bullying at Mass on Sunday, October 14 by wearing purple. And please spread the word about the national observance of Spirit Day held on Friday, October 19 when LGBT youth will see teachers, celebrities, athletes and classmates go purple.
