We ran our first ever Parish Marriage Missionaries Level 1 Formation Weekend, August 25-27, 2017 at the Southeast Pastoral Institute in Miami, FL. We are so grateful to all of the couples who attended and to all of the pastors who approved and sponsored their attendance. The goals of the weekend were to: 1) further develop the couple’s interior lives (as the basis of any ministry they do); 2) strengthen their marriage bond (so that it naturally overflows); and 3) equip them for parish-based marriage ministry (to help others develop their interior lives and strengthen their marriage bond).
We were thrilled with how well it went–perhaps even better than we could have hoped. We truly feel God brought together a group of faith-filled married couples and used us at Annunciation Ministries to help them “go deeper in order to go out” and “evangelize through marriage.”
If you love God and love your spouse and want to help others to do the same, join us for our next Formation Weekend, April 27-29 at Our Lady of Florida Retreat Center in North Palm Beach. We suspect this next weekend will be full (we can only accept 30 couples due to space), so sign up soon!
