‘’GENDER THEORY’ is in the news, a lot! Pope Francis has made some clear statements about it. The Scottish Government is consulting on the subject. But how should Catholics respond with both truth and love? The Archdiocese Marriage and Family Commission has organised a free conference for you. Inspired by the Vatican document “Male and Female He Created Them” our expert speakers will give you the facts so you can respond with dialogue based on listening, reason and the Christian vision of male and female. To give you maximum choices, we’re running the event twice so it’s as easy as possible to come along.
