As the House of Delegates prepares to vote on a bill legalizing same-sex marriage, Catholics will join others in the faith community for a March 11 prayer vigil in support of traditional marriage.
The peaceful demonstration will begin at the steps and in the lobby of the State House at 10 a.m., continuing until about 1 p.m. Participants will hand out literature on marriage as delegates go into session at 11 a.m. The demonstrators also plan to sit in the upper gallery of the House chamber while lawmakers debate the issue.
Delegates are expected to debate same-sex marriage for two or three hours, with a final vote to follow.
