RETROUVAILLE Ministry for Troubled Marriages

The Retrouvaille Program helps couples struggling in their marriage to put the pieces of their marriage back together and rebuild loving relationships. It is a Christian program, Catholic in origin, and couples of all faiths or no faith background are encouraged to attend. It is primarily a practical program about improving communication, building a stronger marriage, and helping couples rediscover the love they had for each other. This program is currently being offered in the Diocese of Metuchen and will be held next in February. See the website for more details: www.HelpOurMarriage.com

Next retreat: September 2017 (Click Here for Flyer)

Annual Liturgy for Parents Who Lost a Child

There is no loss like that of one's child. Parents whose children have died will experience grief that is harder, longer and more complicated than other bereaved people. In an effort to offer another step in the ongoing process of healing, the Family Life Office plans a Eucharistic Liturgy each spring for those whose children have died. A personal witness is offered as the name of each child is read during the liturgy.

This Mass is offered annually on the Friday evening before Mother's Day.
