Couples of Faith

Journeying together as a couple and as a deanery community in our faith.

 
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 
 
Whether you are new to marriage or coming up on your golden anniversary, starting a family, raising kids on your own, or healing from a broken marriage you’ll find links to a variety of SJN ministries that can help you:
• Support and strengthen your marriage and/or family life
• Respond to the call to be a sign of God’s love in the world through the way you live marriage and/or family life
