Save the Date!

Join LGBT Catholics and their allies in
demonstrating inclusiveness and celebrating our diversity!

Sunday, October 31, 2010

at the

Cathedral of St. Paul
239 Selby Ave., St. Paul, MN 55102

We’ll gather in loving opposition
to the MN bishops’ campaign
of intolerance and discrimination
against the LGBT citizens of Minnesota.

We welcome you to join in one or both of the following actions.

Wear the Rainbow Sash
as a Symbol of Celebration
of LGBT Diversity

Gathering Time: 11:30 a.m.

Place: The Selby Ave. side of the Cathedral.

Rainbow Sashes will be provided.

Attend the noon day Mass at the cathedral wearing the Rainbow Sash – a symbol of celebration and an invitation to dialogue. The Rainbow Sash proclaims that its wearer is (or knows and affirms someone who is) a GLBT person who embraces and celebrates their sexual orientation and identity as a sacred gift. Since 2005, the Archdiocese has adopted the policy of denying Communion to wearers of the Rainbow Sash.

For more information about this action visit or call 612-721-6341.

Surround the Cathedral with Love!

With their recent anti-gay marriage campaign, the MN bishops have actively championed a message of exclusion. We’ll model and symbolize the gospel message of love and inclusion by joining hands and circling the cathedral! You’re welcome to wear the Rainbow Sash, wave rainbow flags, and/or hold signs and banners with positive messages of support for our LGBT brothers and sisters.

Gathering Time: 12:30 p.m.

Place: On the public sidewalk in front of the Cathedral.

We’ll form our “rainbow circle of love” around the cathedral at 12:45 p.m. When Mass finishes at about 1:00, those who are inside the cathedral for the Rainbow Sash action will join us in the circle. At approximately 1:15 we will all gather on the Cathedral steps for a group photo.

For more information about this action, call 612-201-4534.

and Catholics for Marriage Equality MN
