An Evening of Faith, Fellowship and Spiritual Inspiration
Continuing their efforts to advocate for maintaining the definition of marriage as that of a union of one man and one woman only, the Catholic Bishops of New Jersey have called on all Catholics in the state to observe Sunday, Nov. 29, as a “Day of Prayer” for the Vocation and Sacrament of Marriage.
The bishops also called on Catholics to pray that the NJ State Legislature preserves the definition of marriage. In addition to praying, the bishops asked Catholics to “pledge their personal support for family members, including those who choose to remain single, to help those entering marriage to prepare for the challenges, sacrifices and joys of marriage, and to reach out with the special compassion of Christ to those married couples and families experiencing difficulties, anxiety, and illness.”
Issued through the Trenton-based New Jersey Catholic Conference to the almost 700 parishes throughout New Jersey, the bishops reiterate the clear and emphatic teaching of the Church that marriage, as a union of one man and one woman, has its roots not only in human tradition and history, but also in natural law, which transcends all man-made law.
