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.  

Printable Package on MFL TEAMS



        • 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, would like more information or to have us come do a presentation at your church, please contact:
