The future of the world and the Church passes through the family.... the family is the first and fundamental school of social living: as a community of love. Blessed John Paul II
In our ever-changing world, families find solace and guidance in faith. The office of Marriage and Family Life strives to enrich and strengthen the spiritual and personal relationships of every family: of the engaged, married, widowed or divorced; their children; single-parent families; and others in the family unit.
Every ministry we offer seeks to promote the dignity of all persons, especially the most vulnerable. We do so believing that loving and just family relationships build up the Church, strengthen society, and glorify God.
The family is the first and indispensable teacher of peace. Pope Benedict XVI
