Married Couples Needed!

Husband/Wife Teams are needed to help with our Diocesan Marriage Preparation Program, "Journey into Love".  There is a need for more married couples to give a 20 minute talk at this Pre-Cana program.  Come and share on important topics such as effective communication, commitment/spirituality, marital roadblocks, sacramental marriage, and to help people understand more clearly the importance of family and the gift of married life as husband and wife.  If you have an interest in doing this, please call the Office of Family Life Ministries at 716-847-2210 for more information.
