Respect and dignity have not always been the experience of many in our society including those who are gay.
There are changes needed that will draw on our capacities of love, compassion and respect.
However, the question put before us on May 22nd, proposes changing our understanding of marriage. Such a change potentially alters the whole structure of marriage and parenthood and also leaves us with unanswered questions about possible consequences.
This deserves deep prayer and reflection as we consider the meaning of marriage.  (Bishop Duffy).
Bishop Kevin has a letter for all Masses this weekend and copies available at
the Church doors. See
