United Churches to March in Montreal Pride Parade

Below is an invitation to march in the 2019 Pride Parade with other churches from our region. Interested? Contact the SouthWest office, 514-768-6231.


Dear Friends and United Churches of the Conseil régional Nakonha:ka Regional Council, On Sunday, August 18th, The Montréal Pride Parade is being held in downtown Montreal. We are reaching out to invite you and your church community to walk together as a United Church & Regional Council. Our small organizing group is offering to help people of all ages, so that individuals and groups can be part of this fun and justice-seeking event! The Parade starts at 2:30pm. No need to worry if you are at church in the morning: we will wait for you and hold our place in line. The parade route is 3km. We are happy to help seniors or people with small children, to make the event enjoyable.

As a fellowship opportunity, we invite those interested to a banner-making day the week before. We’ll bring poster making supplies… you bring your rainbow ideas.

How to get involved:

 let us know you want to be in the parade
 dress for summer with comfortable walking shoes
 bring a water bottle, sun screen and a hat
 meet us at the determined location (tbd)
