Marriage and family rally set for San Francisco

.- A prayer rally in support of marriage and family will be held in San Francisco this week, the day before Palm Sunday, April 3. The rally is being organized by the San Francisco branch of Your Catholic Voice, in cooperation with the local archdiocese.

Organizers say the rally is for families and youth. They describe the rally as “a witness of faith and an expression of Catholic solidarity for those wishing to make a dignified and respectful public statement to promote, preserve and protect marriage as a union between a man and a woman, the foundation of our society.”

Archbishop William Levada of San Francisco and Ray Flynn, national president of Your Catholic Voice, will address the crowd. Flynn was also the former mayor of Boston and U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican.

The event will be held at Sts. Peter and Paul Parish, located on Filbert Street at Columbus Avenue. It will include all-night eucharistic adoration April 2, starting at 8 p.m., and mass April 3 at 9 a.m. It will be followed by a prayer rally and rosary procession through historic North Beach at 10 a.m.
