Invited one and all! The Archdiocesan Family Life Office will host a series of gatherings “Educate-Encourage-Engage” at various locations throughout the archdiocese. The purpose of these gatherings is for the Family Life Office staff to meet and greet parish staff (clergy and laity, paid and volunteer) ministering in any field of Family Life including, but not limited to, marriage preparation, marriage enrichment, parenting, separated and divorced, bereavement, pornography, ect. We will also explore the riches found in the USCCB 2021 document Called to the Joy of Love: National Pastoral Framework for Marriage and Family Life Ministry. This important document focuses on four pillars: Prayer and Relationship with Christ, Formation, Accompaniment, and Advocacy which form the foundation for this important ministry.
