On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States of America, by a slim (5-4) majority decision, ruled that same-sex couples can now legally “marry” nationwide.
“Regardless of what a narrow majority of the Supreme Court may declare at this moment in history, the nature of the human person and marriage remains unchanged and unchangeable.” ~ Archbishop Kurtz, President, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB)
On June 21, 2016, the vigil of the feast day of Saints Thomas More and John Fisher, pilgrims on bicycles will depart from the Holy Cross Diocesan Center in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Carrying family photographs and prayer intentions, the pilgrims will bike across the state, giving prayerful witness to the sanctity of Marriage as a sacred union between one man and one woman. Upon arriving at the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help in Champion, Wisconsin, it is our hope that these families and prayers may be presented to Our Lord (through the Immaculate Heart of our Beloved Mother, Mary) at a Mass celebrated on the 1-year anniversary of this tragic, Supreme Court decision (June 26, 2016).
