Marriage, Family and Respect Life: Diocesan Celebration for Families
Diocesan Celebration for Families!
In recognition of the 50th Anniversary of Blessed Pope Paul VI’s landmark encyclical, Humanae Vitae, the Diocese of Steubenville will be hosting a special event.
Married couples and families are invited to join Bishop Jeffrey Monforton and the Natural Family Planning Instructors from across the diocese to celebrate the Church’s beautiful teachings on married love and the gift of new life.
The event will include a Mass at 11:00 AM followed by a potluck meal. It will take place at St. Benedict Church (701 Gomber Ave, Cambridge Ohio) on Saturday, February 10, 2018 - the day before World Marriage Day (http://wmd.wwme.org/).
Please RSVP with the number of people attending from your family by contacting Joe Schmidt of the Office of Marriage, Family and Respect Life at firstname.lastname@example.org or 740-373-3643.
Come and enjoy fellowship and support in living out this beautiful vocation.
