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.
