Catholics mobilize against civil unions ahead of Family Day

'Over 1 million people' expected at Rome demo on Jan 30

Catholics mobilize against civil unions ahead of Family Day

Rome, January 18 - Catholics in Italy were mobilising on all fronts against a bill introducing civil unions for same-sex couples that is due to hit the Senate floor on January 28, ANSA reported Monday. Efforts centered on Family Day in Rome on January 30, with "over a million people" expected to attend according to the spokesman for the organising committee Massimo Gandolfini. So far Neocatechumenal Way is the only Catholic organisation to have confirmed its participation, partly because the position of the Italian Bishops' Conference remains unclear. Meanwhile other Catholic communities are organising differently with prayer vigils and Masses among other initiatives. Catholics are also being invited to take part in a 'prayer relay' leading up to January 30 with one-hour prayer slots available for booking on line through the website unoradiguardia.it. Opposition to the civil unions bill hinges on a provision introducing stepchild adoption, or the adoption by one partner of the other's biological child.
