Congratulations on your Marriage!
We hope your wedding day was a great celebration of your Sacramental relationship! Your wedding day is just the beginning of a lifetime of living out the Sacrament and covenant of Marriage.
The journey ahead of you will not always be an easy one. Building a lifelong relationship takes a lot of work and effort. There will be challenges ahead of you that you cannot even imagine right now.

And you don’t walk this journey alone. Your diocese is dedicated to walking with you, encouraging your Marriage, and offering whatever help we can. We encourage you not to become complacent in your relationship.
Below you will find some excellent resources for strengthening and nurturing your Marriage. Take advantage of these resources early and often – and build a strong, lifelong Marriage and a loving family!
