Supporting Our Faithful Priests . . . 

In support of our Priests, our families, and our Church . . .

You may have seen the recent Letter, from more than 450 Priests, in support of The Church’s Teaching on Marriage. The hermeneutic of continuity: Support for Marriage Letter from priests of England and Wales

We would like to invite you to sign the Letter, below, to be sent to the Press in support of those Priests and to encourage others to sign it.

TO SIGN, please leave your Name and your Diocese in the Comments Box, below, or,
if you prefer, E-Mail them to one of the Co-ordinators: Mark Lambert or Andrew Plasom-Scott.

The Letter:

Dear Sir,

We, the undersigned, wish to endorse and support the Letter, signed by over 450 Priests, in the recent edition of The Catholic Herald.

As Laity, we all know from our own family experiences, or those of our friends and neighbours, the harrowing trauma of divorce and separation, and we sympathise with all those in such situations.

It is precisely for that reason that we believe that The Church must continue to proclaim The Truth about Marriage, given us by Christ in The Gospels, with clarity and Charity in a world that struggles to understand it.

For the sake of those in irregular unions, for the sake of those abandoned and living in accordance with The Teachings of The Church, and, above all, for the sake of the next generation, it is essential that The Church continues to make it quite clear that Sacramental Marriage is indissoluble until death.

We Pray, and expect, that our Hierarchy will represent us, and The Church’s unwavering Teaching, at The Synod this Autumn.

Yours Faithfully,
