- About USCCB
The Catholic Church, through her bishops in the USCCB, defends the institution of marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The word “marriage” isn’t simply a label that can be attached to different types of relationships. Instead, “marriage” reflects a deep reality – the reality of the unique, fruitful, lifelong union that is only possible between a man and a woman. Please visit the website dedicated entirely to this issue: Marriage: Unique for a Reason.
