TODAY IS THE FEAST OF THE ASCENSION OF THE LORD

MARRIAGE – WHAT CAN I DO?
Today we need to do all we can to cherish and foster marriage and ensure that the true meaning of marriage is not lost for future generations.  We need to do this without losing pastoral support for those of a same-sex orientation. (Archbishop Vincent Nichols)
The Government is consulting on ‘Equal Civil Marriage’ because it wants to entend the right to a civil marriage to same-sex couples.  The public consultation runs until 14th June 2012 and is open to anyone.
You can let the Government know your views by: writing to your MP
www.findyourmp.parliament.uk
or
by signing the ‘Coalition for Marriage’ Petition at the back of church.
