Symposium on marriage to be held May 5 at St. Patrick Cathedral

CHARLOTTE — In recent months, there has been a significant amount of discussion in the wider public about the Catholic Church's position on marriage and related ethical issues.

In the midst of this situation, many Catholics find themselves in a state of confusion about how to understand and discuss these topics in a meaningful way.

In order to help Catholics and others comprehend and appreciate the Church's teachings about marriage and related issues, Father Richard DeClue will offer a symposium on marriage May 5 in the Great Hall at St. Patrick Cathedral's Family Life Center from 1 to 4 p.m.

He will give three talks on the fundamental principles and reasons behind the Catholic vision of marriage to help inform attendees prior to the May 8 vote on the marriage amendment to the North Carolina state constitution.

For more information, contact the church office at 704-334-2283, ext. 424.

    I agree with Dr. Valenta's Dec. 4 commentary on welcoming Syrian refugees. The refugees are fleeing evil and are searching for something else. This is a perfect opportunity for Christians to...
