Bishop Loverde Encourages Participation in March for Marriage

In an article in the Arlington Catholic Herald entitled “Stand for Marriage, Stand for Faith”, Bishop Loverde encourages the faithful to participate in the March for Marriage on June 19th.

He writes, “I know that some you have resigned yourselves to the redefinition of marriage, or perhaps are not convinced that defending the true definition of marriage is essential to the well-being of society, but I urge you, by example and prudent and thoughtful words, to stand for marriage at this critical time in our history. This is a fight worth having, and the time is now! As I wrote to you when we voted on marriage here in Virginia, ‘Preserving and promoting marriage is an integral component of our shared civic responsibility.’ “
