Stand with Nativity School and show support for LGBTQI+ and Black Lives! Sign the petition today. 

Update June 16, 2022: Bishop Robert McManus’ decree that a Worcester school can no longer identify as Catholic is a shameful denial of the Gospel, according to DignityUSA. Read More.


Nativity School of Worcester, MA, has been flying the Black Lives Matter and Pride banners along with the American Flag for over a year. However, on April 3, Bishop Robert McManus told the Jesuit school that these flags “deny our Catholic identity” and ordered them be taken down.

  

Nativity is a Jesuit all-boys school that provides tuition-free education to about 60 mostly Black and Latinx children from low-income families. School leaders and community members defend the flags as visible symbols that all are welcome and valued.  

Add your name to join us in standing with Nativity School and proclaiming that in our Church, every person matters and belongs. Keep those symbols of welcome flying!
