Dear 2009 National LGBTI Health Summit-eers and LifeLubers!
The Abbey of the Windy City Sisters, Mission of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, INC., is a group of 21st Century Queer Nuns dedicated to the promulgation of omniversal joy and the expiation of stigmatic guilt (in a nutshell). The Abbey has been working with the LGBTI Health Summit to conduct a ritual and blessing at the opening ceremonies on Friday August 14 at the Chicago Hilton Towers - Buckinghams from 6p - 9p. To truly make this a powerful and meaningful blessing we, the Abbey has placed veils at Test Positive Aware Network, Howard Brown Health Center, the Center on Halsted, and other organizations. The Abbey will be performing a Veil of Shame ritual, more details below.
•THE COMMUNITY IS INVITED TO WRITE ANY AND ALL OF THEIR PAIN AND SHAME AND GUILT FROM ANY TIME IN THEIR LIFE THEY HAVE FELT OR BEEN MADE TO FEEL BY OTHERS.
•SISTERS WILL ALSO BE WEARING WHITE VEILS AT THE CEREMONY FOR ATTENDEES AND GUESTS TO WRITE THEIR PAIN AND GUILT ON.
•DURING THE RITUAL, THE SISTERS WILL PERFORM A BLESSING AND WILL VEIL OURSELVES IN ALL OF THE COMMUNITY’S PAIN AND SUFFERING, EXPIATING ALL STIGMATIC GUILT THE COMMUNITY HAS FELT; WE WILL TAKE ON ALL OF THE PAIN OF OTHERS, AND EXPIATE IT!!
•THE SISTERS WILL ALSO BE LEADING THE ATTENDEES OF THE SUMMIT ON A BAR CRAWL THAT EVENING AND WILL PERFORM A PUBLIC VEILING OF SHAME FOR THE COMMUNITY TO SEE THEIR PAIN EXPIATED!
With many blessings,
