GOOD, It's about time: Rainbow Mask-Wearing Women Denied Communion at Denver-Area Catholic Church; Woman Claims Catholic Church Denied Communion Because of Rainbow Masks

Rainbow mask-wearing women denied Communion at Denver-area Catholic church:
Two women wearing rainbow masks were denied Holy Communion at a Denver-area Catholic parish days after its school fired a teacher who confessed to being in a same-sex relationship.
Jill Moore and Susan Doty wore the gay-pride-themed masks to Mass at All Souls Catholic Church in Englewood, Colorado, on Saturday, and when they presented themselves to receive the Holy Eucharist, the priest motioned for them to move on, FOX 31 reported.
Moore and Doty attended Mass at the parish alongside their friend Sally Odenheimer while wearing the masks to show "support and stand in solidarity" for Maggie Barton, a former teacher at All Souls's affiliated school who was fired earlier this month for being in a same-sex relationship.
The Archdiocese of Denver said Barton was fired for failing to "honor the commitments she agreed to in her contract with the school," noting that they include "refraining from taking any public position or conducting himself or herself in a manner that is contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church." --->READ MORE HERE

Woman claims Catholic church denied Communion because of rainbow masks:
A group of Catholic women claim they were denied Communion at an Englewood, Colorado church for wearing rainbow-colored face masks.
Sally Odenheimer said it was an effort to show support for Maggie Barton, an LGBTQ teacher fired from the church’s affiliated Catholic school. Barton claims she was fired from All Souls Catholic School in Englewood after the Archdiocese of Denver learned of her same-sex relationship.
The Archdiocese said she was fired because she violated her contract, which includes “refraining from taking any public position or conducting himself or herself in a manner that is contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church.”
“When Maggie Barton’s story hit, it struck a cord in me and I felt compelled to do something,” Odenheimer told Nexstar’s KDVR.
Arriving for Communion, the priest ‘nodded for her to leave’
Odenheimer and her three friends attended mass at All Souls Catholic Parish on Saturday, Feb. 11, wearing their rainbow-colored masks. Odenheimer said they don’t usually attend All Souls.
“Our whole intent was to support and stand in solidarity for Maggie and for all,” Odenheimer said. --->READ MORE HERE
