February 12-14: Virtual Marriage Encounter Helps Couples Thrive

Are you looking for a way to enrich your marriage without leaving your home? Worldwide Marriage Encounter is offering an experience you can enjoy from the comfort of your home, using your computer.

A virtual Worldwide Marriage Encounter experience in this region will take place Valentine’s Day weekend, February 12-14, 2021. Traditionally experiences are offered in a hotel or retreat house, but to adapt to current needs, Worldwide Marriage Encounter is bringing it to where couples are – in the privacy of their homes.  It features a series of presentations by three married couples and a Catholic priest that touch on many aspects of marriage. Each presentation aims to help couples achieve more success in their marriages.

Couples who recently attended a virtual Worldwide Marriage Encounter experience said their time together was enhanced by being at home.  “A virtual Marriage Encounter experience was a truly life-giving experience for us, with the intimacy enhanced by being able to share together in our own home,” said Ron and Judy Pekny, of Fort Worth, Texas. “Each presentation felt very natural, as if we were simply having a conversation with the presenters.”

The experience helps married couples thrive together and live their best lives in love. It gives couples the opportunity to spend time focusing on each other; provides them with tools for building and maintaining a strong, Christian marriage in today’s world; and learn skills not only to improve their relationship but to thrive together for years to come. There is no group sharing and the experience respects the privacy of each couple.

There is a non-refundable $100 application fee for the experience. For more information, or to register for this virtual experience, contact Frank and Margie Pearson at 860-337-2447, or call Mary-Jo McLaughlin at Catholic Family Services, 860-848-2237, Ext. 312.

World Day for Migrants and Refugees 2021: Toward an Ever Wider “We”   
Can you imagine being 14 years old and having the courage to make the life-threatening decision to cross the borders of two countries, with complete strangers, traveling part of the way on foot, at times in an over-crowded van?  When Maria was two months old her father disappeared.  Her mother, left with a toddler and a two-month-old, often went without food in order to feed her children.  Hunger was a constant companion to Maria.  There must be a better life, she thought.  So she decided to try to go to the United States, even though she knew sh...

TRASHED! - Virtual Series Explores Human Life, the Earth as Our Home
The dignity of human life is being called into question every day in our world on every level.  All that we believe and hold true as Christians has become countercultural and human life has now become a commodity with a monetary value.   Our throwaway society disposes of life when it becomes inconvenient, costly or politically incorrect. We are challenged to make choices about the value of the human person as technology and consumerism reach new and unprecedented heights.   TRASHED!  is a virtual event beginning on Oct. 3 that will celebr...
