Find an opportunity near you

Research shows that just 8-12 hours a year of skills-based marriage enrichment makes a significant difference in couples’ satisfaction in relationship (and therefore in their rates of divorce). To make these opportunities more accessible to all couples, many of our parishes have begun building their own marriage ministries. The opportunities listed here are hosted by parishes, but open to all couples. Find a date, time and place that works for you, and invest a few hours in your most significant relationship!
