Diocese of Sacramento to host event on Catholic understanding of marriage

.- The Catholic Diocese of Sacramento will host family scholar Jennifer Roback Morse to discuss how to defend Catholic teaching on marriage, especially as it relates to the debate over same-sex “marriage.”

Morse's presentation—titled “Same Sex Marriage: Why Not?”--will focus on why the Church teaches that marriage can only take place between one man and one woman. She will also discuss the serious consequences of changing the legal definition of marriage and offer practical tools to present the Church's teaching with “clarity, sensitivity and compassion.”

Morse founded the Ruth Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to education and encouraging lifelong married love. She is the author of several books, including “Smart Sex: Finding Life-long Love in a Hook-up World” and “Love and Economics: It Takes a Family to Raise a Village.”

The diocese has encouraged teachers, administrators, clergy, catechists, directors of religious education, youth ministers and parents to attend.

Morse's talk will take place Oct. 21 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Good Shepherd Church in Elk Grove. The event is sponsored by the Diocese of Sacramento's Department of Evangelization and Catechesis and the Catholic Schools Department.
