Support for Marriage
Marriage in the Catholic Church is a sacrament which reveals God’s love through the love of the couple.
Research is proving that marriage and relationship enrichment are important for couples who want their marriage to stay healthy.
The Family Ministry Office wants to assist you to live your marriage in a joyful way. Whether through a quick pick up from one of the marriage tips, or an evening or weekend marriage enrichment session, we have something for everyone.
If your relationship is struggling, Retrouvaille is a great program to rebuild the love you once knew.
