“We’ve come out with a better understanding of who we are individually and where we want to go collectively as a married couple with actual plans. We’ve already implemented a few of the techniques we’ve learnt from the course.”

Maria & Lucio | Engaged Online Course

It has given us much needed time and space to examine our marriage – what is working and what is not. We have now new tools and techniques to enrich our marriage. We are looking at each other anew through a positive and loving lens.

Margaret & Ben | Marriage Seminar

“I am full of awe at what lays ahead. One thing that didn’t hit me until a little while ago was the fact that when we are married, I won’t have to do this alone but we’ll have prayer on my side and the power of the sacraments to help us grow in our union. It’s a very encouraging thought.”

Tim & Sarah | Engaged Course

“Doing this course reinvigorated dialogue between us. It gave us several exercises to try, and there were many insights that came out of the activities. It also moved us towards a re-invigorated prayer life. It allowed us to stop and think and reflect.”

Anna & Michael | BreakThrough Course

I just wanted to say thank you for the work that you are doing. Your blogs are a great encouragement to me in our very perfectly imperfect marriage. Our recent participation in a five day marriage intensive counseling event revealed a strong diagnosis of schizoid personality disorder for my husband. Struggling with the responsibility to bear witness to God’s redeeming love in this particular scenario has been a lifelong endeavor and your work of support and encouragement to keep on is incredibly appreciated by me.

Help support Catholic Marriage

When a marriage breaks down, the trauma effects the spouses, their children, their extended family, their workplace, the wider community. When human failings in love are so painful, it can set up generations of disadvantage and makes it harder to trust in God’s love.

The most effective way to prevent the tragedy of divorce is to build a marriage culture that empowers people to build thriving relationships.
