Marriage Enrichment

Good marriages can always be made better! According to Pope Francis, marriage is “a project to be worked on together” and a “process of growth” (Amoris Laetitia, no. 218, 221). The Catholic Church strives to promote and provide many opportunities for spouses to enrich their marriage and deepen their love and understanding of each other and of the Sacrament of marriage.

Current Marriage Enrichment Opportunities:

“Love Never Ends” Marriage Enrichment Mini Sessions offered by Worldwide Marriage Encounter
In partnership with the Office of Marriage, Family and Life of the Archdiocese of St. Boniface, The Worldwide Marriage Encounter movement in Winnipeg, will be offering a series of marriage enrichments across parishes in 2024. The main theme of the enrichments will be “Love Never Ends”, with half-day or evening options for these life-giving sessions. Each mini enrichment will have a specific focus, for example: Communicating Intimately, Listening in A New Way, and Discovering God’s Desire for our Marriage. Come to enrich and deepen your love for each other as a Catholic/Christian couple. For more information, or if you would like to have one of these enrichments at your parish, please contact Marie Brunet at or 204-594-0274.
