The Marriage and Dating Conference endeavors to rekindle a sense of the profound significance and sanctity of marriage among the laity and those involved in marriage ministry. Families form the fabric of parish communities as well as of society, however the family has come under attack in ways we may not be aware of.

No matter what your relationship status is, or even if you minister to couples, you will be sure to learn practical ways to bring Christ into your relationships.
