“An Ontario Catholic school board is holding a ‘spiritual development’ day Friday for teachers that, with the blessing of the bishop, has a facilitator lineup of LGBTQ activists as well as a group that promotes ‘gender’ ideology.
Moreover, the Waterloo Catholic District School Board has admitted to dismissing parents’ concerns about the event by sending them one pro-forma response, then ignoring them.
Facilitators at the December 6 WCDSB event (see schedule here) include LGBTQ activist Kevin Welbes-Godin, formerly with the homosexual activist group Egale; and retired Catholic principal and lesbian Joan Grundy.
It also features workshops by ‘unlearn,’ the Kitchener-Waterloo-based brainchild of Abhi Ahluwalia that runs school and employer workshops on helping people discover their ‘unconscious bias’ — for a fee of $3,500.
Bishop Douglas Crosby has endorsed the spiritual development day through his vicar of education, Fr. Cornelius ‘Con’ O’Mahony, whom WCDSB director of education Loretta Notten copied on emails between her and LifeSiteNews.
Notten admitted in a reply to O’Mahony inadvertently sent to LifeSiteNews that her policy is to send parents one canned reply, then ignore subsequent questions.”
