Other Services

Family Life is concerned about keeping the family unit together. We are also concerned about those family members experiencing difficulties or challenges such as: adoption, blended families, single parent families, dealing with in-laws, all types of abuse, and issues with growth. Though we are not counselors; we regularly provide referrals to counseling services at Catholic Charities, and resources that can help you in conjunction with counseling.  We do not sponsor groups for bereavement or family issues, but we do work with many groups throughout the diocese and will be happy to help connect you with one. 

If you are interested in helping with presentations, workshops or days of reflection on various aspects of parenting, marriage issues, spiritual, or grief issues  please contact your Office of Family Life Ministries at 847-2210 or e-mail

Information, brochures or materials on any of these family based ministries unless otherwise indicated are available through your Office of Family Life Ministries.

We look forward to hearing from you!

God Bless You and Yours!
