Does the OMI parish of St. Joseph's in Ottawa encourage sodomy?

The rot in the Church at Ottawa continues 25 years later

Long known as a centre of heresy, dissent, liturgical abuses and innovation, the parish of St. Joseph in Ottawa on the campus of its once Catholic university has a rather queer announcement in last week's bulletin.

While Catholic teaching is clear that people who suffer from same-sex attraction must be loved and respected as human persons created by God, it seems that this event goes beyond that command to the point of endorsing a "lifestyle" that is the antithesis of life and love.

Where it the Catholic teaching? 

Where is "Courage Apostolate?"

Where is the real compassion instead of this false compassion?

Why is a Catholic Church supporting a group and permitting in its bulletin a label on a human being that the Catechism of the Catholic Church does not place and in fact, declares incorrect? 1.

— Friday, July 13 Sacristy room, 7-8:30 pm. When John McNeill, pioneering advocate for LGBT human rights, was thanking God for his partner of 22 years, one of the things he listed in gratitude was: "He does me the honor of being angry at me when I do something thoughtless or hurtful." During our meeting, we will talk about anger in our lives as individuals and as a community — particularly how to channel our anger with the Church's view on women's rights and homosexual love into a passionate search for justice? Please bring a beverage or snack to share. To get a copy of an excerpt ("Dealing with Anger") from John McNeill's book, Taking a Chance on God, email

This striking quote on "how to channel our anger with the Church's view on women's rights and homosexual love into a passionate search for justice?" pretty much states their views on the Church's teaching.

Continuing saga of heresy and dissent

At Ottawa University Mass, the extent of the problem is also seen as St. Joseph's "fine-tunes" its communication strategy. Yes, not much has changed in the twenty-five years since  I left Ottawa. Well, at least the stinking fishpond is gone from the sanctuary but let us not forget this invitation obviously endorsed by the OMI's at the parish to Capital Pride; now how's that for a play on words?

Violation of Canon Law

Yet, it still gets worse. Canon Law is quite clear, the laity do not preach at Mass. The homily is given by the bishop, priest or deacon, not even a seminarian is qualified as until the diaconate, they are still not in the clerical state. No nun may deliver a homily. No homily may be addressed by a layman or laywoman. None. Yet, not even if they be a Protestant Minister -- a layman or woman who also happens to be a heretic. Yet, not even that is too much for the OMI's at St. Joe's as evidenced right here.  Even people promoting EWTN and opposing Dalton McGuinty's takeover of Catholic teaching in favour of a homosexualist agenda in our schools are slandered. They go so far as to publish a disclaimer, "Please note that the group responsible for leaving these pamphlets and flyers on the cars in the parking lot is in no way affiliated with St. Joseph’s Parish or with the church’s ministries." Too bad I say. Are there any Catholics left at this parish? How can there by after decades of heretical teaching and behaviour?

Narcissism consistently leads to liturgical abuse

Where do we begin to count the sacrilege and liturgical abuses outlined in Redemptionis Sacramentum? The priest celebrating this Mass is violating Canon Law and even the Second Vatican Council's Constitution of the Liturgy, Sacrosanctam Concilium. Their beloved John XXII would never have tolerated this, nor would the tortured Paul VI. All Popes have spoken out and written on this abomination, this priest is disobedient to the Church and he is committing scandal. If that is being judgmental, so be it. It is the truth.

This priest, this parish, this Order is in full communion with the  Holy See and the Priestly Society of St. Pius X is not?

The heresy and abuse and scandal at this parish and by this Order is not the teaching of the Council, but it does come from a false spirit of the Council that is still yet to die.

As noted in a post below, this parish was instrumental in the Oratorian Affair of 1988 and 1989.  I was there, I witnessed it.

The pastor at the time at St. Joseph's was Father Douglas Crosby, OMI, the now Bishop of Hamilton.

This parish is an Oblate parish, the OMI's. They also have a star chamber house in Edmonton for enneagrams, yoga and other heresies antithetical to Catholic teaching.

The OMI's were some of the worst sexual predators hiding out in priest's clothing with particular attention being paid to boys in the Maritimes and aboriginal Canadian communities in the west and north.

Now the OMI's from Labrador have followed the OMI bishop to Hamilton as they "co-pastor" and dress as clowns during Mass.

Let this be a warning. You can no longer hide.

You will be outed, in more ways than one, just as the darkness flees from the light.

1.  Chastity and homosexuality 
2357  Homosexuality refers to relations between men or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity,141 tradition has always declared that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."142 They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
2358 The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

2359  Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.

Cardinal Collins was also unavailable re: my requests to remove writings of the pervert Raymond Lahey from the CCCB website. Eventually, archbishop Smith removed them...

Cardinal Collins is also unavailable re: my requests to take action against dissident nuns. I now include a letter I sent on march 5 (the reply to the following letter, from a layman was:"I will check into this. All the best".).

Is the Archdiocese aware that Sr. Caroline Dawson addressed a pro-
abortion, dissident group at Loretto College, St. Michael's University
(of which the Cardinal is the Chancellor)?
Is the archdiocese aware that Loretto College has been used at least
twice by the so-called Canadian Network for Women's Equality (also a
member of "Women Church Convergence" a radical, dissident organization).

1. What will the Archdiocese do to ensure that this does not happen
again? 2. Canon law provides generous provisions for the local Ordinary
vis-a-vis religious communities domicile/active within the diocesan
boundaries - up to, and including suppression.

As they fine-tune their communication strategy, they invite comments from the community. Here are a few examples of why people worship as St. Joe's:

--Invitation to be the Spirit – not shackled by prescriptive Catholicsm but open to the paths of the mystics – accepting – weekly reinforcement of us in God and God in us

--A dogma-free place and community of worship, a faith-celebratory place

--Liberal, open-minded,(so open-minded that their brains fell out?) inclusive and still Catholic (really??)

--Truly a spiritual experience – not “religious”

--Apparent and intense dedication of the parishioners, strongly female

--All are welcome, open, not rigid, willing to bend when necessary

I guess this probably isn't an isolated incident either. Going to the Oratory shelters one to the abuses going on in mainstream parishes.
Gabby quotes "not shackled by prescriptive Catholicism". I don't get why people who don't agree with the Church's teachings don't just go find or start another church; why hang around and complain? Or if they do go to another church; embrace it; don't keep making sour comments. (cough Joanna Manning cough)
