The National Association of Catholic Family Life Ministers held its annual Conference July 28-30 in Denver, Colorado. This is a national organization for those who work in marriage and family life in the Catholic Church.
We were thrilled to be selected to present a workshop on running a Diocesan Marriage Summit. This was our workshop title and description:
UTILIZING A “MARRIAGE SUMMIT” TO CREATE A PARISH-BASED MARRIAGE MINISTRY MOVEMENT: Looking to strengthen the vocation of marriage in your parish or diocese? Come learn how to offer a one-day “Marriage Summit” to connect, inspire, and encourage faith-filled married couples and clergy to do “just one thing” new in their parish to strengthen the vocation of marriage.
We had a good number of diocesan directors of marriage and family life attend our workshop and many liked the idea and are interested to implement it in their diocese. We have been keeping those in attendance in our prayers! Please let us know if we can assist you in your efforts.
We also exhibited our other services and received quite a bit of interest in our Fiat Couples Groups. We sold a number of Starter Packs to diocesan and parish representatives from various places in the country. We are keeping each of these new groups in our prayers and invite you all to register your group on our website here. We also invite you to stay in touch with us to let us know how things are going and if you have any questions. We are happy to help and answer any questions you may have.
We pray for all of the great work happening in marriage and family life throughout our country, and in Canada as well. And we pray for even greater efforts to strengthen the vocation of marriage and family life in our beautiful, diverse country.
I can’t help but include some pictures from the beautiful scenic state of Colorado, including some from a favorite spot of mine, Mother Cabrini Shrine in Golden, Colorado.
