Defending Marriage - Pastoral Letter

Below video of the letter sent to all parishes in England and Wales read by Archbishop Vincent Nichols. This letter is to be read or distributed to all parishioners this weekend.

Pastoral Letter on Marriage from Catholic Westminster on Vimeo.

As Archbishop Smith puts it, “Marriage is a fundamental social institution and neither the State nor the Church has the right to redefine its meaning.” He therefore welcomes the formation of a grass roots campaign, ‘Coalition for Marriage’, and encourages us all to sign their petition in support of the traditional meaning of marriage.

Bishop Kieran too urged people to sign the petition. This may be signed online at or for printed copies go to or call 0207 403 7879.
