Marriage, Family and Life


Mission Statement

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.
