Boston Archdiocese allows ‘gay pride’ Mass|
Until 2007 one of the main gathering places in Boston for homosexuals was the Jesuit Urban Center (JUC), a ministry of the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Boston. That year the JUC was closed and its homosexual members were bequeathed to St. Cecilia Church. The JUC community was merged into that Church as the Rainbow Ministry. Recently, its current pastor, Fr. John Unni, planned a Mass for June 10 to celebrate ‘gay pride’ as part of the ‘gay week’ activities (June 3-12) in Boston.
Facing strong pressure from conservative and traditionalist Catholic blogs, the Archdiocese canceled that Mass.
A campaign was made by Fr. Unni and the members of the Rainbow Ministry to reverse the ban. Ceding to this new pressure, Archbishop of Boston Cardinal Sean O'Malley stepped back and allowed the Mass to be rescheduled, this time on July 10, 2011 (here and here).
Above, parishioners pray outside St. Cecilia Church to protest the ban. Below first, second and third rows, different shots of that same event.
