Are you a Catholic married couples who are searching for Christ in their marriages and their everyday lives? Marriage is a challenge whether a couple is newlywed, raising a family, or “empty nesters.” St. Norbert Parish Couples Marriage Spirituality (CMS) program offers couples a way to grow together in faith and love. Through group meetings, couples find support in their efforts to lead lives that reflect the Gospel message.
Couples in St. Norbert Parish’s CMS practice a spiritual direction that includes; personal, couple and family prayer each day, regular reading and reflection on Scripture and a monthly “sit down” for the couple to discuss family/spiritual matters. CMS focuses on ‘couple spirituality’ and the ‘two becoming one’ meaning of marriage.
CMS enhances spiritual intimacy and helps couples focus more on each other. The “sit down” time is viewed by many as a great tool to discuss things without the usual distractions of daily living. It helps couples check in with each other away from the children, work, etc., and spend time focusing on each other.
This group meets monthly for food, fellowship, study and prayer. Additional weekend retreats and a vow renewal ceremony maybe planned each year.
