Covenant of Love: Fanning the Flames of the Gift of Marriage
“Covenant of Love” the marriage ministry at St. Thomas More, is in full swing. Marriage is a great gift from God and it is important to keep fanning the flames and finding the tools needed to enjoy the most important relationship in your life. With many great retreats, meetings and social activities, whether you are newly engaged, recently married, your marriage is hurting or you have celebrated 50 wonderful years every couple can find something to spark its interest.

Many of us know what the church teaches about marriage but do you know why? This couple-to-couple ministry explores God’s Plan for Marriage, Forgiveness and Healing, The Servant Spouse, Communication and Marital Spirituality. If your marriage is on a rocky road or gotten off the track, Marriage Disciples can help you find your way back. If you are looking at deepening your marriage relationship through prayer and understanding of the churches teachings, Marriage Disciples can answer your questions and guide you.
The Marriage Encounter Weekend is recognized as a successful and dynamic marriage enrichment experience. Since the first Marriage Encounter in the United States in 1968, couples and priests have volunteered their time and energies to bring the Marriage Encounter experience to couples everywhere. Today more than seven million couples in over 86 countries have experienced the beauty and the gift of Marriage Encounter. If you have been married for many years, the Weekend can restore communication, renew commitment and rekindle romance.
Is your marriage tearing you apart? Is there little or no meaningful communication? Are you considering separation or divorce? We believe Retrouvaille ("re tro vi") can help you. A Retrouvaille weekend helps to re-establish communication and gain new insights into yourself and marriage. After attending the weekend there are a series of follow-up presentations which provide a time and place to work on your relationship.
A common financial mistake is to exclude God from finances. Proverbs 3:6 states, “Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.” Here is how one person described the life-changing impact of learning and applying Godly principles in his/her financial life:
“Three years ago my wife and I were living on credit. We had over $65,000 in credit card debt even though I only made about $40,000 yearly. We routinely paid for daily expenses and bills with revolving debt. We just kept moving the balances around.”
