In May, 2006 representatives from a group of parishes in the Naperville-Lisle-Woodridge area began meeting to

develop a vision of marriage ministry through which they would coordinate resources for marriage enrichment.  Working on the premise that a marriage enrichment program is challenging to organize and sustain at a parish level, this group is working together to create inter-parish marriage enrichment opportunities.


Marriage is a vocation to holiness. From engagement and newly married through their golden years, married couples have the awesome task of witnessing to God’s faithful love to each other, their children, and society. No couple does this perfectly. All marriages can grow in knowledge, faith, joy, and love through couple support and mentorship, enrichment programs and Church teaching.  Modified from For Your Marriage (https://www.foryourmarriage.org)
