Marriage is Important
'Marriage is Important - Reflect before you Change it' is the message of the Irish Bishops in the leaflet at the Church door. Please take a copy home with you. Marriage is of fundamental importance for children, mothers & fathers & society. We all need to reflect before we change it - respecting the views of people who think differently to us, trusting that our sincerely held views, grounded in Faith, will also be heard & respected.
