The marriage and family ministries at St. Catherine’s strive to build up strong families within our parish. Strong marriages build up strong families who in turn build up the next generation of the Church. We invite you to join us to discover and live out God’s amazing plan for the family.
So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
1 Corinthians 13:13
Couples for Christ is called to bring families back to the plan of God, and to bring the strength and light of Christ to those who are struggling to be true Christian families in the modern world. We are a family ministry whose primary focus is on Christian family renewal and global evangelization. Our initial faith formation and renewal program is the Christian Life Program and it is open to all interested adult parishioners. The CLP helps lead individuals and couples into a renewed understanding of God’s call to us. At the completion of this program, you are invited to join a small household group where you are provided continual spiritual and emotional support and encouragement as you grow in your spiritual life. We provide ongoing formation through teachings, recollections, and retreats (e.g. Family Enrichment Retreat, Marriage Enrichment Retreat, etc.) We also provide opportunities for fun and fellowship in our ministries. (e.g. Family Christmas Party, Youth and Singles SportsFest, Kid’s Harvest Festival, etc.)
Families in Christ Jesus Community (FCJC) is a movement of Catholic Christian Communities who believe in the urgent need to respond to God’s call to proclaim and defend His Gospel on the family (Genesis 1:28; Gen 2:24). We are a part of a nationwide ministry of families bringing families to Christ. Learn more about programs, mission, and our sister communities across the United States at the national website.
