Garcia says that while supporting these couples pastorally, the church also is concerned with making sure the Catholic in a mixed-religion marriage continues to practice his or her faith and that the couple takes seriously the Catholic party’s pledge to raise their children Catholic.We're finding out now that it matters to the people in his community.My friends and family are very happy for me but his friends and co-workers aren't quite as happy. I'm finding out and appreciating his religion and I respect it.“For many years, I told myself (and others) that I was going to the nearby Catholic college so I could meet a nice Catholic boy and get married,” Richards recalls.But when she met Levy—who is Jewish—the two quickly became friends and eventually started dating.
