Bishop Paprocki to visit Archdiocese of Cincinnati
One of the most talked about topics of the day — same-sex marriage — is the focus of the Feb. 12 LeBlond Series lecture at The Athenaeum of Ohio/Mount St. Mary’s Seminary of the West.
Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki, of the Diocese of Springfield, Ill., will present “Marriage, Same Sex Relationships and the Catholic Church”, at 7:30 p.m. in the Bartlett Pastoral Center on the Athenaeum’s campus, 6616 Beechmont Ave., Mount Washington, The presentation is open to the public. Seating is limited.
Bishop Paprocki will explain the Catholic teaching on same-sex marriage with truth and love. He is a courageous civil and canon lawyer who was thrust into the national spotlight in 2013 when he publicly opposed legalization of same-sex marriage in Illinois.
For more information, please go to www.athenaeum.edu or contact the Father Earl Fernandes, Athenaeum dean, at 513-231-2223, extension 152.
