An event advertised as a “Pride Mass” scheduled to take place on the feast of Corpus Christi at Pittsburgh’s Duquesne University was canceled after the diocese’s bishop, David Zubik, disavowed the event in a letter sent May 31.
The event was canceled by university officials, according to WESA, Pittsburgh’s NPR station.
Representatives from the private Catholic university declined to confirm with CNA if they were responsible for canceling the event. Instead, university officials forwarded Zubik’s letter that requested the Mass be canceled in light of the controversy.
The Mass to which LGBTQ Catholics, families, and “allies” were invited was set to take place in Duquesne’s Holy Spirit Chapel on Sunday.
