Family and Faith Formation

Marriage and Family Life

The Office of Marriage & Family Life 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 Office of Family & Respect Life 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.
