Canadian Congregation of Nuns Funding, Promoting LGBT Activism

The following report was submitted to the Lepanto Institute by a concerned Catholic in Canada, Christian Loew. Upon reviewing Christian Loew’s research, it became immediately obvious that the Congregation of Notre Dame in Montreal, Quebec, Canada is acting directly in contradiction with Catholic moral teaching and the faithful need to be made aware of the situation.
The Congregation of Notre Dame was founded in 1653 by a French saint named Marguerite Bourgeoys. The would-be-Saint hoped to help build the colony of Ville-Marie (now Montreal). She dreamed of educating the women and children of New France and after many hardships she founded the Congregation of Notre Dame (CND) to do just that. In present day, the CND now boasts approximately 150 members and a storied history of more than 300 years of commendable service to the Church.
Unfortunately, in recent years, CND has dramatically deviated from its work of faithful service to the Church. A careful examination of its website, twitter feeds, and the public statements of its sisters reveals that CND is not only promoting homosexuality, but funding pro-homosexual organizations.
According to CND’s webpage listing its various collaborations, CND works with an organization called LOVE – Leave Out Violence.
In fact, CND isn’t just a collaborator with LOVE, it’s a GOLD-level sponsor, providing between $10,000-$24,000 to this organization.
The problem is that while LOVE is an anti-bullying organization, much of its activity is in promotion of the cause of homosexuality.
