A happy marriage is a gift from God and one of the most reliable secrets to happiness. However, it isn’t automatic! It requires effort, commitment, and knowledge. Ester and Arthur Brooks have taught marriage preparation and enrichment classes for young couples in Maryland. They have recently joined our parish, and will offer a monthly seminar and discussion for all those interested in co-creating a Christian marriage full of love, laughter, and affection (and healthy arguments). Please join us on Saturday, January 25th, for our first session after the 4 p.m Mass in St. Mary’s school cafeteria. Wine, cheese, and other refreshments will be be served.
