Couple's Ministry leads a wonderful, spirit-filled retreat every year. All couples are encouraged to participate in this enriching opportunity. Each year we alternate a one day enrichment opportunity (onsite) with a weekend retreat (offsite).
The Catechism teaches that "Christ’s grace in the Sacrament of Marriage protects the essential purposes of marriage: the good of the couple and the generation and education of children. These purposes are protected and fostered by the permanence of the marriage bond and the mutual fidelity of spouses” (United States Catholic Catechism for Adults, 283).
Those of us who have been Catholics all our lives often take the symbols and rituals of Advent for granted. But for those who are seeking to join the Church, the pre-Christmas season presents an opportunity to immerse themselves more deeply into the Catholic way of life.
They catch the spirit of joyful anticipation as they worship with us on Sundays. They are full of questions about the Advent wreath, the liturgical colors, the Parish Reconciliation Service, and the meaning of the scriptures chosen for Advent. They learn the Catholic way of preparing for Christmas by attending our parish events and participating in works of charity like Angel Tags.
The not-yet-Catholic seekers among us can be models of wonder and awe for those of us who may have become a little less enthusiastic about the season. Invite your non-Catholic friends and relatives to attend mass with you. It may refresh your own sense of this meaningful time of year.
