Marriage Ministry: Nurturing the Soul of the Individual and the Couple
Welcome to the Marriage Ministry section of our diocesan Web site. We hope that your marriage has been a time of happiness. If you are preparing to get married we would like to help you prepare not only for the wedding day, but for a lifetime of joy and commitment.
However, we recognize that all couples face difficult times, whether you have been married five months, five years or fifty years. Our hope is that our programs can offer you the assistance that you and your spouse need to grow closer together and closer to God. Our staff is always ready to help you connect with the resources you need to find help, support, and enrichment for your marriage.
Marriage is a sacrament in the Catholic Church, a covenant with God that will last a lifetime. We are committed to help you live your marriage as happily as you can all the days of your life.
It’s easy to be in touch. Send us an e-mail or give us a call. In sharing our joys and needs with one another, we take part in the abundance our life of faith can be.
“”That is why a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and the two of them become one body””Genesis 2:24

“Wherever you may be—dating, engaged, newlywed, in a mature marriage, or empty nesters—your relationship can benefit from a little expert advice. It’s too big a puzzle to put together from scratch. Don’t go it alone. We’re here to help make married life easier, more meaningful and enjoyable” (USCCB, 2007)
