Marriage Enrichment Initiative
We are a marriage building cluster!
The second of 'Six Dates for Married Couples' is Friday, May 2, 2014 at 6:30 pm at the Sacred Heart Parish Hall in Walker.
After a short movie, couples will have the opportunity to have some quality one-on-one time with each other. FREE Childcare is available and ends at 8:30 pm.
The 'dates' do not build on each other and you did not have to attend either of the earlier events.
The Marriage Enrichment program will continue throughout the year with the 'Six Dates' series.
Remaining 'Six Dates' WHEN, WHERE & TIMES are:
Friday, May 30th: 6:30 pm @ St. Mary, Urbana Parish Hall. Childcare ends @ 8:30.
Friday, June 20th: 6:30 pm @ St. Mary, Vinton Parish Hall. Childcare ends @ 8:30.
Saturday, July 19th: After the Walker 5:15 Mass in the parish hall. A meal will be served to children in childcare. Childcare ends at 8:00 pm.
Friday, August 15th: 6:30 pm @ St. Mary, Urbana Parish Hall. Childcare ends @ 8:30.
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.
