It is so important to highlight that one of the solutions to the problem of divorce and apathy in marriage is a knowledge of the divine plan for marriage and fidelity to the living out that plan. It is hard for couples to conform to God’s will when they are not continually enriched to God’s plan for marriage. We offer various opportunities for parishes to present God’s wonderful plan of marriage as well as providing insights on how to live out that plan.

How can we help with your parish?

Can’t make it to the Abbey for a retreat or want to have Jason or Dr. Mario talk at an event? You can have one or both of them come to you! The Faith and Marriage Ministry offers various types of presentations each formatted to provide witness and catechesis to the truth of God’s Awesome plan for marriage. Our goal is to provide an in-depth look at the truth of who we are in Christ, our vocation and the steps toward a joy-filled and vibrant marriage. Or we can help you plan, organize and market your next marriage enrichment event at your parish. Just give us a call or fill out the form below and let us know how we can help lead your spouses to a deeper knowledge of the truth.

“In order, therefore, to restore due order in this matter of marriage, it is necessary that all should bear in mind what is the divine plan and strive to conform to it.” (Casti Connubii 96.4)

The content will address questions like:

• How are couples to live out the truth of marriage?
• How can couples divorce-proof their marriage?
• What is God’s purpose and plan for marriage?
• How can married couples strengthen their love and commitment to God and each other?
