Redefinition of Marriage – It’s OK to Say NO!

The Broken Bay Coalition for Marriage campaign is having an induction evening on Monday 18th September at 7.30pm at The Light of Christ Centre, 27 Yardley Avenue, Waitara.

With ballot papers for the marriage plebiscite to be posted from September 12, there is not much time for people to become informed about the consequences of change. The Coalition for Marriage is leading the campaign to preserve marriage. The Coalition is comprised of more than 80 groups from across Australia, representing over 3 million people, led by the Australian Christian Lobby, Marriage Alliance, the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney and the Anglican Diocese of Sydney.
The following resources can be accessed for you, for your family and to share with others:
· A short video from Lyle Shelton explaining what is at stake;
· A simple PDF information flyer you can download;
· A Powerpoint slide with the Coalition for Marriage web address
A letter from Bishop Peter Comensoli to the people of the Diocese of Broken Bay is available in the Church foyer.

A March for Marriage will take place in Hyde Park next Saturday. Visit
