Resources for Married Catholic Couples

Several parishes in our Diocese offer regular, quality marriage enrichment opportunities. Check out:

The annual Celebrating Marriage Event in the Diocese is a chance for jubilarian anniversary couples (those celebrating 25, 40, 50, or 51+ wedding anniversaries) to receive a blessing from our Bishop and enjoy a nice lunch and speaker together. Occurs each September at Ss. Simon and Jude Cathedral. Call 602.354.2355 with any questions.

Beloved Series

Beloved is a video-based enrichment program by the Augustine Institute that explores the true meaning of the Sacrament of Marriage. Through an exploration of Scripture, Tradition, and Church teaching, God’s plan for your marriage will come alive. You’ll see firsthand the wonder, mystery, and joy behind that first “I do”—whether you said it last year or many years ago. Informative and inspirational, Beloved will help you live out the Sacrament of Marriage more profoundly, so that your love story is drawn ever more into the greatest love story of all . . . God’s own love for us. Beloved sessions are presented on a 6-DVD set, and kits come complete with Couple’s and Leader’s Guides – everything you need to experience the full power of Beloved for marriage enrichment.
