About Us

Marriage: Unique for a Reason is an initiative of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

En Español

Marriage: Unique for a Reason offers resources to assist with the education and catechesis of Catholics on why marriage is unique and why it should be promoted and protected as the union of one man and one woman. Each of the videos in this initiative, with its companion written material, is intended to be used for personal reflection and group discussion and as a resource for clergy, catechists, teachers and other leaders. 

While the materials are primarily intended for a Catholic audience, it is hoped that Marriage: Unique for a Reason can be of assistance to all people of good will who seek to understand the truth and beauty of marriage. The truth about marriage is accessible to everyone because it is a truth grounded in the nature of the human person. Promoting and protecting marriage witnesses to the dignity of every person and serves the common good.

In addition to these resources being available online, DVDs and accompanying study guides are available for purchase at the USCCB Publishing website (search by title).
