So I guess we won’t be getting a grant to hire students this coming summer.

The Liberal government in Ottawa has just introduced a new policy regarding the distribution of student grants. It states: “To be eligible, applicants will have to attest that: both the job and the organization’s core mandate respect individual human rights in Canada, including the values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as well as other rights,” This means that to obtain a grant, the parish must sign a declaration pledging support for abortion, euthanasia, and transgender rights etc. Since it is clearly impossible for any Catholic parish to sign such a document, the parishes will not be able to apply for any summer grants.

Don’t forget to thank any federal representatives if or when they come into the area for discriminating against Catholic Churches.
