Support for Your Marriage

In a sacramental marriage, God’s love becomes present to married couples and flows through them to their family and community. As couples journey together through the ups and downs of marriage they can become more able to give to and receive from each other.

The Pastoral Care staff is available to meet with couples who have concerns or want to strengthen their marriage. Resources include: pastoral counseling, the use of the ENRICH inventory and referrals to professional counselors.
