Post to Twitter Post to LinkedIn

WASHINGTON (MetroCatholic) - Catholics seeking reliable information on what the Catholic Church teaches about marriage will now be able to visit . . , a website featuring resources such as an extensive FAQ section on the meaning of marriage, a compilation of Catholic teaching on marriage, a blog, and videos, “Made for Each Other” and “Made for Life.”

The site, which was launched by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage, also invites visitors to subscribe to the blog. Portions of the site will be translated into Spanish.

“The launch of the Marriage: Unique for a Reason website demonstrates the continued efforts of the bishops to educate the faithful on the unique meaning of marriage as the union of one man and one woman and on marriage’s foundational place for the flourishing of any society,” said Bishop Salvatore Cordileone of Oakland, California, chairman of the Subcommittee. “The website will establish an online presence for the Subcommittee’s work, and will serve as a reliable place where inquiring Catholics and others can find authentic teaching about marriage. I encourage all those working to educate others about marriage’s meaning to take advantage of the site, especially priests, deacons, catechists and teachers.”

The Marriage: Unique for a Reason website is the latest phase in the USCCB’s ongoing catechetical and educational work on marriage. The initiative began in June 2010 with the release of “Made for Each Other,” and continued in June 2011 with the release of “Made for Life.” Future video resources include a Spanish-language video, and videos about marriage and the common good and marriage and religious liberty, due out next year.

Catholic websites are encouraged to include a web banner linking to the new site, which can be found at . . . Marriage: Unique for a Reason joins the bishops’ initiatives For Your Marriage ( and Por Tu Matrimonio ( in providing web resources for the strengthening, promotion, and protection of marriage.
