"To set out on the path of the
married vocation means to learn married love day
by day, year by year: love according to soul and
body, love that is patient, is kind, love does
not insist on its own way... and does not
rejoice at wrong; love that rejoices in the
right, love that endures all things."
--John Paul II
A Day of Enrichment focused on Couple Prayer
and the Vocational nature of the Sacrament of
Matrimony - NEW EVENT! May 11th, Villa
Maria Guadalupe, Stamford, CT
Praying together is profound. It brings a
new closeness to spouses and draws them to be
"in relationship" with our Lord. As
married couples we are called to this growth in
relationship but often find ourselves confused
as to what steps to take or how to go about
praying together. This day of enrichment
is designed to inspire married couples to either
begin or travel further down the path of prayer
and communion with God.
