Let all that you do be done in love - Corinthians 16:14
Bill and Tina Cerha

Through our sacramental bond, we should be striving in leading our spouses to heaven. Marriage can sometimes have its trying and frustrating moments. Throughout all of this, we must not forget that the person we married is our best friend. Husbands, love your wife as Christ loved the church.

This is definitely not the definition of love that our society broadcasts. But it is the kind of love that God showed to us and that He requires us to have toward everyone – including our spouses. Before we can grow in our relationships, we must build our foundation on love in its purest form.

Forming Faithful Families
Tim and Mary Ellen Jakubisin

The world is in grave need of witness of strong and beautiful marriages today. It is desperate for this light. Married couples are called to create a culture that esteems marriage and family. One key element of marriage is raising our children to be faith-filled Catholics who are on fire for their Faith, and subsequently to go on and support and encourage our grandchildren in living out their faith. A married couple's role in nurturing the Catholic Faith continues even after our children have left our home. Learn practices, prayers, and traditions that will aid you in your mission of passing the Catholic Faith onto your children and grandchildren and creating a culture that respects and reverences marriage and family.

This is Our Time
Mark and Christi Tripodi

Do you believe your marriage matters for your children?

Do you believe your marriage matters for our culture?

The reality is, our time is limited here and we have to make the most of our time together as a married couple. We cannot wait! Marriage is not easy…it’s actually quite difficult at times. This talk will inspire you to focus on the ultimate goal of heaven with practical tips of how to change the world by living an example of a faithful marriage.

Not someday…THIS DAY!

Not somewhere…RIGHT HERE!

Not sometime…RIGHT NOW!
