11th Annual Diocesan Wide Supper & Substance

Rock ‘N’ Bowl | Saturday, July 28th | 7pm-9:30pm

Come hear a powerful and inspiring presentation from Dr. Chris & Christine Baglow as well as enjoy live music from the talented Peace of Cake Band.

Dr. Chris and Christine Baglow have been married for 23 years and are the proud parents of four beautiful children: Margaret, John, Peter George, and William. The Baglow’s marriage is founded on mutual respect and devotion to one another and to Jesus Christ and His Church. The Baglows are passionate about the evangelization, education and spiritual formation of Catholic laity – both children and adults. They met and became friends as young adults working side-by-side in youth ministry. Over the years, their mission has grown to include various ministries such as the Willwoods Faith & Marriage Board, chastity education, Theology of the Body, Pro-LIFE work, virtue formation for children, Faith & Science education, service to the poor, seminary education and much more. But, their primary mission remains to one another and to their children.

The Baglow family have been an amazing blessing and gift to our community and to the Archdiocese of New Orleans for many years. This summer they are responding to God’s call to move to South Bend, Indiana where Chris will begin work with the McGrath Institute for Church Life and serve as the director for the University of Notre Dame’s Science and Religion Initiative.

Tickets will be available for purchase at the door for $45 per person which includes admission, food, drinks at the bar, bowling, shoe rental, and a rockin’ good time! Also, anyone who comes to the event can stay after, admission free, for the rest of the night.

In the last three decades, thousands of couples from over seventy parishes have attended a Supper & Substance. Husbands & wives have been strengthened and parishes have grown closer together in this simple yet effective marriage enriching program.

The evening can be and have been carried out in a variety of fashions.

The “Supper” includes a delicious meal, often centered on a theme, that is decided by the parish. Some evenings focus on creating a romantic atmosphere by providing candles, dimmed lighting, flowers, elegant music, etc, while others are more festive in nature with prizes, music, and decorative centerpieces and dress/costumes.

The “Substance” features a presentation by a carefully chosen couple who share the joys and struggles of “living out” their sacrament. The purpose of this part of the evening is to gain insight into matrimony and to encourage couples to a deeper intimacy.
