National Marriage Week and World Marriage Day

National Marriage Week (February 7-14, 2019) and World Marriage Day (Sunday, February 10) is an opportunity to focus on building a culture of life and love that begins with supporting and promoting marriage and the family. 

To assist parishes in supporting marriage, we are offering “Building a Stronger Marriage: A Marriage Enrichment Event” on Saturday, March 9, 2019 from 8:30 a.m.– 4:00 p.m. at Resurrection of the Lord Parish in Standish.

Prayer for Married Couples

Almighty and eternal God,
You blessed the union of married couples
so that they might reflect the union of Christ
with his Church:
look with kindness on them.
Renew their marriage covenant,
increase your love in them,
and strengthen their bond of peace
so that, with their children,
they may always rejoice in the gift of
your blessing.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
