June 17th Parish Speaker Series

Marriage and fertility rates are cratering, hitting lows unprecedented in American history. A record share of today’s young adults will never marry and never have children. But the paradox is that marriage and family life matter more than ever. Men, women, and children in married families are much more likely to thrive socially, emotionally, and financially than their peers who don’t enjoy the safety and stability of a married family.

Professor Brad Wilcox of the University of Virginia will reveal what’s happening to marriage and family life, why these two institutions are losing ground, and what we can do to revive their fortunes in 21st-century America.

Our Hospitality Committee will provide light appetizers and drinks for the event.
