Join Us at Twin Cities Pride to Celebrate Marriage Equality!

Catholics for Marriage Equality MN will have a booth
at this year's Twin Cities Pride festival (Saturday, June 29 - Sunday, June 30).
We'll also be participating in Sunday's Pride parade.

Join us in the Parade on Sunday, June 30!

Our parade line-up number is 126. We will be behind Mormon Allies and in front of The Saloon (which should be easy to find as they always have a very big and colorful float!).

The parade begins at 11:00 a.m. sharp! And so we ask you to arrive at the staging area between 10:00-11:00 a.m.

The staging area is along 3rd St. S. in downtown Minneapolis, but it also extends off 3rd St. on 4th Ave. (between 3rd and 4th Sts.). That's where we'll be gathering!

We'll be marching in the parade as Catholics Celebrating Marriage Equality! The parade route is approximately one mile, starting (for us) at 3rd St. and 4th Ave, proceeding down Hennepin Ave., and ending in Loring Park.

Visit Our Booth in Loring Park

As in previous years the Pride Twin Cities Festival will be taking place in Loring Park on the edge of downtown Minneapolis, Saturday, June 29 - Sunday, June 30. We invite you to stop by and celebrate with us the role that many Catholics played in defeating last year's 'marriage amendment' and securing in 2013 marriage equality for all!

We're also looking for folks to help staff our booth for an hour or two on either Saturday or Sunday. If you're interested in doing this, call Michael at 612-201-4534.

Our booth in Loring Park is #P-032, which means we're in the purple section of the festival map. Our booth is located between the horseshoe court and the lake, in the Lyndale/Hennepin and W. 15th St. corner of the park.

We look forward to seeing you at Pride 2013
and celebrating marriage equality with you!
