Our Founding Organization


"Marriage in Christ offers the kind of practical, at home activities of prayer, conversations and actions that could have helped many couples avoid drifting apart. The Church is in great need of programs like this that offer not only insightful talks, but even more so, at home activities to deepen the couples unity and commitment. Above all it is clearly Christ-centered."


Most Reverend Peter L. Smith, Auxiliary bishop and vicar general, Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon
