Can you separate fact from fiction in the contentious arena of marriage and contraception?

Marriage and family are at the center of many of today’s most heated debates. In a world that often divorces love from responsibility and marriage from procreation, the Church is often attacked for being old-fashioned, out-of-date, and “oppressive.” But do you know the truth? And did you know that Pope St. Paul VI correctly predicted the current debatesand responded to themback in 1968?

Join us for a roundtable with expert presenters who will lead you into a deeper understanding of the Church’s beautiful teachings on marriage, birth control, and family life as expressed in Pope Paul VI’s timeless encyclical, Humanae Vitae. You’ll gain key insights into this important document and leave with a renewed appreciation of the Church’s unchanging teachings. You’ll be able to engage in discussions about these topics with new confidence.

Contrary to popular belief, the Catholic Church has always been the most ardent and consistent defender of human love. Join us to find out the truth!
