We believe that our primary identity is as children of God.With that identity comes societal and cultural constructions that have both positive and negative impacts on humanity and the Church.
Primary for us is the gospel understanding that all persons are important—because they are human beings created by God and loved through and by Jesus Christ and not because they have merited significance.
We therefore support social climates in which human communities are maintained and strengthened for the sake of all persons and their growth.
Cultural identity evolves through our history, traditions, and experiences.
The Church seeks to fully embrace and nurture cultural formation and competency as a means to be fully one body, expressed in multiple ways.
To see about obtaining one you should see a parish priest.
If you are thinking seriously about marriage, I would urge you to investigate the Catholic faith and consider becoming a Catholic.
We also encourage all individuals to be sensitive to others by using appropriate language when referring to all persons.
Language of a derogatory nature (with regard to race, nationality, ethnic background, gender, sexuality, and physical differences) does not reflect value for one another and contradicts the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We affirm the sanctity of the marriage covenant that is expressed in love, mutual support, personal commitment, and shared fidelity between a man and a woman.
We believe that God’s blessing rests upon such marriage, whether or not there are children of the union.
Denominations can be a great thing and they can be a bad thing when they begin to disassociate with the rest of the world and withdraw - unlike Jesus himself who never spoke of denominations and who's main ambition was to enage and accept others.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
