MARRIAGE MINISTRY AT ST. RITA
St. Rita is a loving community,
committed to the support of sacramental marriages.
“For man is created in the image and likeness of God who is himself love. Since God created him man and woman, their mutual love becomes an image of the absolute and unfailing love with which God loves man. And this love which God blesses is intended to be fruitful and to be realized in the common work of watching over creation….”
- Catechism of the Catholic Church
St. Rita has a number of programs in its marriage ministry, geared toward:
- Preparing engaged couples for entering into the sacrament of marriage.
- Helping married couples enrich their relationship and further the richness of their life in the sacrament.
Engaged and Married couples that participate in these programs provide a loving presence and gift to our community at St. Rita’s, but also experience greater depths of understanding and intimacy in their own relationships. Take a look at the programs below, and consider whether God is calling you to participate.
Marriage Preparation Sponsor Couples
Married couples (3 years or more) meet with engaged couples as part of their preparation for the Sacrament of Marriage. In a series of four meetings normally held in their home. Sponsor Couples share their experiences as they discuss important issues couples are likely to encounter on their journey. Bring your marriage experience and we’ll provide the necessary training.
