The Office of Marriage and Family Life for the Diocese of Duluth, in collaboration with other diocesan and community ministries, is devoted to building up the Body of Christ by promoting a Catholic vision that celebrates and encourages the sacredness of love, marriage, family and the dignity of every human life from conception to natural death. This Office engages the faithful through marriage preparation and enrichment as well as pastoral support services through educational initiatives and other programs. This Department seeks to serve as a resource that invites all people to embrace the Gospel message and the freedom that ultimately follows.
For Your Marriage
“Willed by God in the very act of creation, marriage and the family are interiorly ordained to fulfillment in Christ and have need of His graces in order to be healed from the wounds of sin and restored to their ‘beginning,’ that is, to full understanding and the full realization of God’s plan.” (John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio #3)
