How does a drag show fit the mission of a Catholic university? That is what a Catholic education expert asked when hearing about such a performance, which took place at Jesuit university in Philadelphia on Friday.
A drag show, listed as an event of Saint Joseph’s University’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion office, was held April 22 at the student center, The Perch.
Dr. Denise Donohue, Vice President for Educator Resources at the Cardinal Newman Society — an organization which promotes and defends faithful Catholic education — told CNA April 27 that “the mission of Catholic education is to evangelize and witness to the truth of God and the world through complete integral human formation.”
“How do these types of shows do that?”
