Rally @ Cathedral Basilica Nov. 29

Catholic Action Network, the Holy Families Committee, and Show Me No Hate are organizing a rally to be held at the steps of the St. Louis Cathedral Basilica on Sunday, November 29.

During this time of economic hardship, unemployment is high and families are struggling to meet their basic needs. This year, the St. Louis Archdiocese eliminated 6% of its administrative and educational office jobs, and four positions at Catholic Charities.

The archdiocese then saw fit to contribute $10,000 to the total of $180,550 donated by the Catholic Church to fight same-sex marriage in Maine. Marriage rights had been granted to same-sex couples by the Maine state legislature and signed into law by Maine's Catholic governor in May.

If you believe that the St. Louis Archdiocese could make better use of its limited funds, please join us at 11:30 a.m. on the 29th to stand together for equal rights and religious tolerance.
