The Office of Marriage and Family offers a range of services and programs that form couples and families to live out their Catholic faith that is Christ centered.
"And over all these put on love, that is, the bond of perfection.” Colossians 3:14
As part of the overarching mission of the Church, the Office of Marriage and Family responds to the needs of families through the development of pastoral programs.
Resources and programs offered consider the changing needs of today’s families. In a faith-filled, professional manner, this ministry empowers parishes to collaborate with diocesan programs, train lay leadership for family ministry, engaged and marriage ministry, and support for the divorced, separated and older adults.
The diocese celebrates a couples love at one of the most memorable, pivotal and beautiful time in a couples life. It is essential to remember that it is not just about love – it is about what God created you to love so that you may honor him.
Divorce inflicts pain on all those affected. Those divorced or separated need to know that the Church cares about you.
The Church supports the methods of Natural Family Planning (NFP) as this process respects God's design for married love.
The Office of Pastoral Care fosters a family perspective in church and society and promotes total ministry to, with, by, and for families in all stages by coordinating diocesan programs that provide resources and tools to pastors and lay pastoral care ministers.
