Faithful Catholics of every generation are invited to rediscover and defend the truths of church teaching on marriage at a conference on Saturday, April 21 sponsored by the St. John Neumann chapter of Catholics United for the Faith.
“Matrimony: Rediscovering Its Truth” will feature presentations by Cardinal Raymond Burke, prefect emeritus of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura; Father Gerald E. Murray, pastor of the Church of the Holy Family in New York City and a frequent commentator on EWTN and Relevant Radio; and Father Gerald Dennis Gill, director of the Philadelphia archdiocese’s Office for Divine Worship and rector of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul.
This multigenerational conference and day of prayer is excellent for everyone — married or single — who seeks to strengthen their knowledge of the Catholic faith. Participants will leave with a sharpened understanding of the magisterial teachings on matrimony, the sacrament of Christ and his bride, the Church.
The conference will take place at the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul on Saturday, April 21 from 10 a.m. to 6:15 p.m. The daylong event will include Mass accompanied by the Cathedral Choir, eucharistic adoration, the recitation of the rosary, and a Marian procession and coronation of the national pilgrim statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
