2019 Seminar Kickoff - Eagan, MN
Thirty couples from 25 churches in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis came together on January 5, 2019, to connect and plan for the upcoming Marriage in Christ seminar season. Jean Stolpestad, Director of the Archdiocesan Office of Marriage and Family life encouraged the couples in their ministry. Stolpestad said, "Young couples need Marriage in Christ. You can help them build healthy, happy, holy habits that will launch them into their married life. That's where the culture will begin to change."

NEW Collaboration - Portland, OR!
Marriage in Christ has a NEW two-year collaboration with the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon. We have had our first round of training host couples in three parishes. We plan to train more host couples and launch more seminars in both the Portland and Corvallis areas in 2019. The Holy Spirit has been at work. We are excited to be agents of change for marriage on the West Coast!
