Have you been impacted by John Paul the Great's theology of the body? Are you willing to respond to the Church’s urgent need to strengthen marriage? Are you confident of the beauty of the Church’s teachings on marriage and sexuality and willing to boldly confront the culture’s contraceptive mentality?
The Diocese is blessed to have the God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage program that clearly lays out the Church’s teaching on marriage and sexuality, teachings that are becoming more and more counter-cultural in our society. But the world is in great need of an authentic understanding of what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God, to love as God loves, to entrust your marriage to the Designer of Marriage. The program uses the Theology of the Body to lay a foundation of the Church’s understanding of marriage and love and provides practical insight into how we as married couples can live the gift of love honestly, in accordance to our marriage vows.
We are in need of individuals and married couples to facilitate the God's Plan program throughout the year. Training is provided to all couples and the annual commitment is 20-30 hours. Will you join us?
