Marriage & Family Ministry

The Office of Marriage and Family Ministry offers a range of services and resources to respond to the needs of couples, families, and individuals as they live out their Catholic faith. Retreats, training and formation opportunities are available for clergy, staff and lay leadership in marriage and family ministry at the parish level.

We aim to help with Marriage formation and enrichment by collaborating with offices in the diocese and outside organizations to develop coordinated programming for youth and young adults discerning their vocation; as well as, the implementation of the Marriage Catechumenate.

We direct individuals and couples to marriage preparation resources and enrichment opportunities or events. 

We are responsible for Families in the Diocese and best practices for accompaniment.

We are responsible for the Hope and Healing components of pastoral care, connecting folks with resources to help individuals and families get through life’s struggles or bereavement needs

We are responsible for Human Sexuality components of care of individuals and families including but not limited to collaborating with internal offices but also family groups and outside organizations.

“I thank God that many families, which are far from considering themselves perfect, live in love, fulfill their calling and keep moving forward, even if they may fall many times along the way.”  - Pope Francis
