St. John Neumann strives to  be a community of hope and help for marriages & families. The Marriage Ministry is committed to bringing couples into a closer intimate relationship with God and their mates by providing: 
• tools to enrich marriage through education; 
• activities to promote communication and intimacy;
• and biblical understanding of the precepts of marriage so that God will be glorified in our marriages.
We strive to be a ministry at St. John Neumann that brings married Catholic couples at all stages of their marriages together to strengthen their marriages so as to bring Christ’s loving presence more fully into their lives and the lives of our community.
•Offer opportunities for couples to develop friendships with other married couples
•Offer ways to keep our hearts one with Christ’s giving us strength for the journey
•Give us pause in life to spend some time with our spouses

• Support and strengthen your marriage and/or family life

“Beloved” Study for Married Couples



What if Marriage is more than you think it is?

What if, woven into the very fabric of your humanity, is a purposeful desire placed there by God that will play a vital part in his work in the world? No matter how long you’ve been married, it’s always a good time to discover the deepest spiritual, emotional and practical realities of what your marriage can and should be.

Part 1 – The Mystery and Meaning of Marriage
Part 1  will be offered in Spring 2018 – see below for details.

Part 2 – Living Marriage
Part 2 was offered in the Fall 2017.



Beloved: The Mystery and Meaning of Marriage will show you through Scripture, Tradition and Church teaching that God’s desire for your marriage will bring your truest desires alive. The wonder, mystery and joy behind that first “I do”—whether you said it last year, or years ago—is beautifully depicted visually and practically taught by trusted presenters.

In six sessions, Beloved explores:

– Does Marriage Matter?
– Entering the Story of Marriage
– Love Revealed
– Total Gift of Self
– A Sacramental Bond
– Real Challenges, Real Love
