Year of the Family
Family Love: a vocation & a path to holiness

 


Pope Francis has dedicated this year as the Year of the Family, helping families to grow in faith while living God’s joy more abundantly in family life!

In collaboration with the theme for the World Meeting of Families & the Year of the Family, our sub-theme, for the National Week for Life and the Family is, “Living our Calling & Calling with Love.”

We invite you to plan a local initiative in
YOUR parish
or in collaboration with other local parishes to highlight a particular theme of vocations through an event, session, workshop, or another initiative.

We would love to help you advertise your parish events throughout the year, allowing you to reach others in your surrounding communities with an invitation to take part via our
Tri-Diocesan website, lifeandthefamily.com

                                                              

To assist you, we have developed the following package with various resources and event ideas for marriage, and family, as well as, joyfully journeying with others at the end of life through the Horizons of Hope program. You are invited to use any of these materials and suggestions, or to come up with your own!

MARRIAGE, FAMILY & LIFE TEAMS

Marriage, Family & Life Teams 

Do you have an interest in supporting strong Marriages, nurturing Families and promoting Life from conception to natural death?

  • If so, have you ever thought about creating a                            
    Marriage, Family & Life team at your church?


What is a Marriage, Family and Life Team (MFL team)?

  • A Parish MFL team helps support and strengthen couples and families by offering programs and resources that foster an authentically Catholic vision of marriage, family, and the dignity of life at the Parish level, for the Parish Community.

  • A Parish MFL team works with the support and guidance of the Archdiocese of Saint Boniface Marriage, Family & Life Service, along with the Parish priest or Parish Life Director. 

  • Each MFL team looks unique, as each is built to meet the needs of it’s own parish community. One of the wonderful things about having a team in your parish, is that it’s a great way to connect with others in your parish who have similar interests and goals!

  • The Archdiocese of Saint Boniface Marriage, Family & Life Service can help support the formation of a new team, to help you get started, and to connect you with resources and other teams in the diocese.  There are currently 3 other MFL teams in our diocese!

HOW CAN YOU FORM A MARRIAGE, FAMILY & LIFE TEAM IN YOUR PARISH?

  • Print the brochure and share with your pastor & others who may have a heart for building up strong marriages, nurturing families and promoting life in your church.
  •  If you are interested in creating a team in your parish, and would like more information or to have us come present at your church to interested members, please contact:
