In Minnesota, Catholics Sing Their Support for Marriage Equality

Matt Peiken's documentary video project Faith Forward MN recently highlighted Catholics for Marriage Equality MN's April 28 "Sing Out for Marriage Equality" event.

This event involved over 300 Catholics coming together to record David Lohman's song "For the Children." A music video is currently being created from the gathering and will be premiered at a local theater in September. The project is the group's second foray into video-making. A series of "video vignettes" entitled Catholics for Marriage Equality was launched online and on DVD last fall.

Following is Matt Peiken's behind-the-scenes look at the April 28 recording of "For the Children."
