The US Bishops have asked Catholics to participate in National Marriage Week each February, and are urging parishes to observe a “National Marriage Day” during Sunday mass. While we agree that marriage is a blessing, we believe that all loving marriages deserve celebration and recognition– not just heterosexual marriage.
Show your support for all marriages by praying our “Prayer for All Marriages” with your family, faith sharing community or parish. Then, email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know that your community spent National Marriage Week praying for marriage equality. Feel free to send us stories or photos of your community praying for us to share on the website or social media.
