Staten Island St. Patty’s Day Parade Organizers Do Better Next Year


Irish night on shore road - august 2017

A group of people went to the trouble of organizing a St. Patty’s Day parade so everyone could celebrate being Irish. Well, everyone except LGBQT Irish.

As soon as March 1st comes, we start celebrating St. Patty’s Day. To hear that some people were told they couldn’t join in the St. Patty’s Day Parade in Staten Island makes me sad. We can understand if this continued because the organizers were Irish Protestants and don’t relate to our Pope.

In 2016, the Pope said, “The church must say it’s sorry for not having comported itself well many times, many times.I believe that the church not only must say it’s sorry … to this person that is gay that it has offended,” said the Pope.  Further the Pope said, “I will also repeat what the Catechism of the Catholic Church says: that [gay people] should not be discriminated against, that they have to be respected, pastorally accompanied.”

Please do better next year, Staten Island Irish Parade Organizers. Don’t let my students grow up in a world where people hate them for being who they are – it’s just not right.


Spend time celebrating St. Patty’s Day with everyone and don’t accept any reason to leave someone out.
