The Vancouver Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – Abbey of the Long Cedar Canoe are back at it, this time with summer camp clearly in their sights, as they raise funds for their charitable work on November 11th.
“For a lot of queer people, summer camp was terrifying,” says Novice Sister Merry Q. Contrary, the group’s Reverend Mother. “Tenting for Homelessness is our way of queering the camp experience for all who attend. Camping it up with the Sisters will be sure to tickle your fanny, err fancy, and leave you with stories to share by the campfire for years to come,” she winks.
The Sisters are promising a variety of summer camp activities with a decidedly gay twist including knot tying with a bondage master and even what they are calling a Glory Hole-aluliah Confession Booth where you can confess your sins and take your penance.
Proceeds from the event benefit the Abbey’s community grants fund that supports local projects focused on queers, HIV and homelessness.
The Vancouver Mission of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence – Abbey of the Long Cedar Canoe is the only Canadian Mission of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, an international movement of 21st century queer nuns. The Vancouver Sisters’ host a weekly community drop-in on Friday evenings called S’Habit, and are available to attend community events and rallies to lend their support and offer blessings.
