Help Catholics for the Common Good, Help the New Evangelization!

Bill May and our friends over at Catholics for the Common for the Common Good have been tirelessly working to help Americans understand what marriage is and what family is. Just over the past few weeks CCG's Getting the Marriage Conversation Right booklet was awarded the #1 family life book by the Catholic Press Association.

And the USCCB Pro-Life Secretariat turned to CCG to draft their marriage pamphlet which was included in the 2013 Prolife Packet across the nation.

And Bill tells us more: 

"Concerned Catholics have been contacting us from around the country expressing their anxiety about the negative developments regarding marriage. We can offer them various educational support, including Faith And Action Circles, a formation program which equips participants with a positive new approach to witnessing the truth about marriage and family, starting with our own children.

Today I want to tell you about another organization that your support is enabling us to help. There is no religious order in the country that better presents the spirit of the New Evangelization than the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. They even captivated Oprah Winfry, who did several segments about them on her popular network TV program. That is why we are so humbled they asked Catholics for the Common Good to put on a two-day workshop communicating the reality of love and marriage as the foundation of the family for their entire novitiate in Ann Arbor, their Mission Advancement staff and teachers and aids from their local schools."

We need to help Catholics for the Common Good continue their fine work, and right now they are in the middle of a pledge drive:

"It is your ongoing support that permits us to respond to requests like this and lay the groundwork for rebuilding a marriage culture. Friends, we are just two days away from our deadline of raising $10,000, please help us with a tax deductible donation today. Click here to make donations online or send a check to":
