Jesus, Mary and Joseph, in you we contemplate the splendor of true love, to you we turn with trust. Holy Family of Nazareth, grant that our families too may be places of communion and prayer, authentic schools of the Gospel and small domestic Churches. Holy Family of Nazareth, may families never again experience violence, rejection and division: may all who have been hurt or scandalized find ready comfort and healing. Holy Family of Nazareth, make us once more mindful of the sacredness and inviolability of the family, and its beauty in God’s plan. Jesus, Mary and Joseph, graciously hear our prayer.

The Worldwide Marriage Encounter Weekend is a positive and personal experience offering married couples an opportunity to learn a technique of loving communication that they can use for the rest of their lives. It is a chance to look deeply into their relationship with each other and with God. It is a time to share their feelings, hopes and dreams with each other. This is a time for you and your spouse to be alone together, to rediscover each other and together focus on your relationship for an entire weekend.

That Man is You
TMIY is a program designed to help men become better husbands, fathers, uncles, grandfathers – men who want to deepen their faith and be positive role models in our community. We focus on our relationships with God, our wives, families, and with God in each of the persons of the Trinity. Our last season focused on St. Joseph and how he was a perfect example of the man we are each called to be. Our world today offers limited encouragement for us to become the men that God intends us to be.
The St. Albert the Great That Man is You meets on Wednesday morning at St. Albert The Great Catholic Church and offers virtual participation. The meeting begins at 6:00am with a light breakfast and camaraderie. Content is presented and shared that is inspirational and impactful. Faith and sharing faith discussion begins at 7:00am, with wrap up promptly at 7:30am.
