Dublin, Ireland, Jul 27, 2018 / 06:01 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- To maintain state funding, a Catholic marriage counseling group in the Republic of Ireland, Accord, will reportedly begin to counsel same-sex couples.

Accord has now signed a new service agreement with the Irish government.
“Accord Catholic Marriage Care Service CLG has assured Tusla they will provide counselling services regardless of sexual orientation and comply with the agreement,” said a spokeswomen for Ireland’s child and family agency,
