A Day of Marriage Enrichment

Every married couple wants a satisfying, fulfilling and loving marriage that keeps growing stronger over time. However, caring for children, aging parents, work pressures or health issues can distract a couple from tending to their relationship. It’s easy to run on autopilot for months or years. This workshop is an opportunity for a married couple to nurture and strengthen their marriage. A parish Mass at 4:30 pm follows the workshop. 

Mission of Catechesis Day - (Basic Catechist Certification)

It is a great privilege to be a Catholic School teacher or a catechist; to participate in Jesus’ missionary mandate in such a clear way. This role also spurs in us the desire to continue to grow in our faith and to deepen and broaden our own discipleship. In the morning portion of this session, we will pray together and explore Jesus’ missionary mandate and what it means for us today as catechists in the parishes and Catholic schools of the Diocese of Saginaw.
