New Jersey Catholic Church Celebrates LGBT ‘Pride Mass’

Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church in Hoboken celebrated a special “Pride Mass” on Sunday, highlighting a growing rift among the Catholic community over homosexuality.

Despite the Catholic Church’s condemnation of homosexual activity, local media reported, the Pride Mass “signifies an acknowledgement of dramatically shifting views, not only within the Catholic community but Hoboken itself.”

“Once a hardscrabble blue-collar town, decades of socioeconomic transformation have created a relatively cosmopolitan environment when compared to Hoboken’s more parochial past,” the report stated.

The pastor of Our Lady of Grace, Father Alexander Santora, said that the second annual Pride Mass was being celebrated “in support of our LGBTQ Brothers and Sisters.”

“Mass starts at 9 a.m. Afterward attendees are encouraged to march in the World Pride March in New York City with the LGBT Catholic and Friends group,” an ad for the Mass announced.

Catholics seem confused over whether to applaud or denounce the concept of “Gay Pride,” which celebrates homosexuality.

Jesuit Father James Martin, a well-known LGBT promoter, wished his “many” LGBTQ friends a happy pride month in a tweet to his followers on June 1.

Father Martin urged his gay friends to be proud of “your place in the world, and of your many contributions to the church,” declaring they are “wonderfully made” by God.

Bishop John Stowe of Lexington, Kentucky, also tweeted out his support for gay pride, saying on June 28 he is grateful for “the presence of people of faith reaching out to those who have been turned away or felt rejected by the Church.”

Bishop Thomas Tobin of Providence, on the contrary, underscored the immorality of homosexual activity and therefore the underlying problem with celebrating it.
