Marriage Enrichment Initiative

We are a marriage building cluster!

After a short movie, couples will have the opportunity to have some quality one-on-one time with each other to talk about the movie and their relationship.

FREE childcare is available for all 'Date Nights.'

The 'dates' do not build on each other and you did not have to attend any of the earlier events.

The Marriage Enrichment program will continue throughout the year with the 'Six Dates' series.

Remaining 'Date Nights' WHEN, WHERE & TIMES are:

Friday, August 15th: 6:30 pm @ St. Mary, Urbana Parish Hall. Childcare ends @ 8:30.

Saturday, Sept. 27th: 6:30 pm @ St. Mary, Vinton Parish Hall. Childcare ends @ 8:30.

If you have any questions, please call Diane Walston, DRE 319-472-3368

‘Date Nights’ are for couples married one year OR for many years!

Childcare will be provided for all dates!

Mark your calendar and come to as many of the dates as you can!

Comments from participants who attended the marriage workshop Sunday, March 23rd:

*We need to talk to each other about us. Going out and talking about family issues is a 'staff meeting.'

*We all need each other.

*Instead of saying, "I'm sorry, ask for forgiveness."

*The afternoon helped us remember/ focus on what is really important.

*The best example for our kids is to love each other.

*Marriages need continued support in a world driven by secular needs and wants.

*God gave us to each other to complete us. Not to compete.  The difference between the two words is the letter 'L' which means love.

*It helped us remember why we fell in love in the first place.

*A simple door hinge is a visual sign that God is at the center of marriage. We are bound together.

Blessings to you this new year!

Jan 1st, 2014Pope Francis reads a blessing from the Book of Numbers:


“The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.”


He then continues on saying, “There is no more meaningful time than the beginning of a new year to hear these words of blessing."

These "words of strength, courage and hope [will] accompany our journey through the year opening up before us."

May God's blessings shine upon each and every one of us this new year!
