Marriage Preparation and Enrichment

As we, all cope with COVID-19, the dangers it brings and the inconveniences it causes us, we need to remember to hold on tight to our most important connections, the people we love. We cannot let the stresses we experience harm our relationships. One of these is the relationship between husband and wife.

Because of this, we have decided to make this popular marriage enrichment program available to all couples free of charge.

We pray you are well and safe.
