National Marriage Week USA is being celebrated Feb. 7-14

Each year, National Marriage Week USA and World Marriage Day provide an opportunity for the Catholic Church to focus on and celebrate the vocation to marriage and family life. This year, National Marriage Week USA is being celebrated Feb. 7-14 and World Marriage Day, which is commemorated on the second Sunday of February, will be celebrated on Feb. 11.

The theme for this year’s celebration of National Marriage Week is “Love Beyond Words,” which recalls the self-sacrificing love in marriage that is rooted in the wedding promises that the couple makes in matrimony.

Each day of National Marriage Week, digital content will be shared on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops’ social media channels: X (formerly known as Twitter), Facebook, and Instagram. Additionally, resources have been prepared by the USCCB’s Secretariat for Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth which are available for dioceses to utilize at their discretion including a flyer/bulletin insert, and social media graphics in English and Spanish. They may be found at

Other USCCB resources that uphold marriage as a lifelong union of one man and one woman that have been created for the faithful may be accessed through dedicated websites:,, and

National Marriage Week USA, launched in 2010, is part of an international event seeking to mobilize individuals, organizations, and businesses in a common purpose to strengthen marriage in communities and influence the culture. Visit: World Marriage Day was started in 1983 by Worldwide Marriage Encounter.
