Making a Pilgrimage in Defense of Marriage


"March for Marriage 2017 Saturday, June 17th - 11:00 AM in Washington D.C."


As per Archbishop Chaput, "The Church understands marriage as a unique relationship, with a unique definition. It’s a faithful covenant between one man and one woman for life. By its very nature, marriage is ordered not only to companionship and mutual support, but also – and even more fundamentally – to the procreation and education of children. This is why every child deserves a family where the father loves the mother, and the mother loves the father. For anyone to attempt to redefine marriage or the family as something else undermines that goal. Thus it’s vital that the Church keep working to defend the integrity of marriage. For this reason, I support the Marriage March that will take place in Washington, D.C., on June 17, 2017. For more information, please contact the Office for Life and Family [link added] or visit https://www.marriagemarch.org/."

After the first (2013) and second (2014) Marches for Marriage, there was great hope that this event would be growing, as part of a renewed appreciation for marriage/family.  Attendance at last year's event was very small and at least somewhat attributable to late scheduling and there being no transportation coordination from the Archdiocese (as there had been in other years).

Unfortunately, the Archdiocese will NOT be coordinating transportation to and from D.C. for the June 17 (11 am) March.
