Marriage and Family Life
The Marriage & Family Life Ministry serves as an advocate for marriage enrichment. Husband & wife, called to live out their divine vocation as a “domestic church,” can find support and strength in several established organizations/programs.
Marriage is a covenant or partnership of life between a man and a woman, which is ordered to the well-being of the spouses and to the procreation and upbringing of children. When validly contracted between two baptized people, marriage is a sacrament (matrimony) (CCC 1601)
Family & Respect Life Ministry Support Groups
The Family & Respect Life Ministry will host support groups for the following ministries: Natural Family Planning, Marriage Preparation Coordinators, Gabriel Project, and Respect Life/Pro-Vida. These gatherings are great places to know about diocesan events, share best practices, connect with others, and pray together.
