Resurrection of Our Lord Church
8402 Brock Bridge Road
Laurel, MD 20724

Fee for food & materials: $10

RSVP to your Bridegroom here!

You were romanced in Princess Diaries, now he asks, “Will you be my bride?”

Based on the bible verse…

Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory. For the wedding day of the Lamb has come, his bride has made herself ready. She was allowed to wear a bright, clean linen garment. (The linen represents the righteous deeds of the holy ones.) Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who have been called to the wedding feast of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These words are true; they come from God.” (Rev. 19:7-9)

…Jesus invites us to a wedding in a heaven. This event will give us a taste of it.

RSVP here.

Memo from the CFC USA Council Regarding the HHS Mandate

 

The National Council of Couples for Christ – USA released a pastoral message regarding the community’s stand on conscience protection (SFC is a family ministry of Couples for Christ).

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Greetings and Blessings!

In the past couple of weeks, much news has been made of the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) unprecedented mandate that would force religious institutions, in violation of their religious beliefs, to provide and pay for abortion-inducing drugs, contraceptives and sterilization. Recently this month, an accommodation from President Obama seemed to try to answer the objections from the Catholic Church. The truth of the matter is nothing was changed as far the intrusion of our religious liberties.

This is a real and very current issue that, we as Catholics must respond to. Cardinal Wuerl, Archbishop of Washington, best described it in his letter to the faithful on the HHS mandate as he states: “What is at stake here is a question of human freedom. The authors of the Bill of Rights enshrined freedom of religion as our nation’s first and founding principle. We should not be reduced to petitioning the government for rights that the Constitution already guarantees.” Read the rest of this entry
