Most Rev. Thomas J. Paprocki, bishop of Springfield, Ill., will speak at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 12 at the Athenaeum of Ohio/Mount St. Mary's Seminary of the West, 6616 Beechmont Ave., Mount Washington.
"Bishop Paprocki will explain the Catholic teaching on same-sex
marriage with truth and love," the Athenaeum of Ohio said in a statement. "He is a courageous civil and canon lawyer who was
thrust into the national spotlight in 2013 when he publicly opposed legalization
of same-sex marriage in Illinois."
The talk -- in Bartlett
Pastoral Center on the Athenaeum's campus -- is open to the public. Seating is limited.
