Some members of a San Francisco church attended Sunday's mass in black clothing, protesting a controversial pamphlet given to kids as young as 7 years old.
Parents and alumni at Star of the Sea church are upset the pamphlet touches on topics like masturbation and mercy killings.
During the service, a few members dropped notes of opposition instead of money into the collection basket.
The notes are directed at the Rev. Joseph Illo, who was behind the literature.
"Again, it was without the permission of the parents, and I find it to be abhorrent," said Marie Conroy-Salbi, a graduate of the Star of the Sea Academy.
Illo is also behind the decision to ban altar girls at the church.
