Defend Marriage: Stand with Children Training and Formation Program

An important message from our friend Bill May and Catholics for the Common Good, who are working for the defense of marriage and the family.

Join the Community Shaping the Future of Marriage and Family
Sunday, October 3 in Richmond

The latest judicial decisions regarding Prop. 8 have illustrated just how confused our culture is about the reality of marriage and family. Watching media coverage leads us to believe that no one knows understands or knows how to discuss the reality of marriage.

Catholics for the Common Good's Stand with Children Training and Formation Program is different from what any other group or organization is doing. It is the first grassroots organization and mobilization effort in the country teaching people how to discuss marriage using terms that will not subject them or their children to persecution, and will put those who want to redefine marriage on the defense. Through this Program, we are uniting a community shaping the future of marriage and family.

Proponents of redefining marriage are intent on shutting off any and all debate, even within families. It is more critical than ever that we become formed in the reality of God's creation and armed with positive techniques for promoting marriage and family.

The "Regaining the Offense on Marriage" Training in Richmond is open to anyone wanting to promote marriage and family. Register today! This is an opportunity that you cannot afford to miss. The future of your children and your families depend on this. As Pope John Paul II said, in this time and culture, "it is not permissible for anyone to remain idle." Help assure that no one will be turned away from training events because they cannot afford the modest fees. Please make a
tax-deductible donation to Catholics for the Common Good Institute to support our generous scholarship program.
