Marriage & Family Life Office
“The future of the world and of the church passes through the family” -- St. John Paul II
The Marriage and Family Life Office exists to draw married couples, families, and all persons of the Diocese of Columbus into a deeper union with Jesus Christ and with one another through a four-fold approach of prayer, education, outreach and advocacy. Through evangelization efforts, the Marriage & Family Life Office strengthens the remote, proximate, and immediate preparation for marriage, and equips the family to fulfill its mission of becoming fully alive in Christ. The Office continually supports and encourages the vocation of Christian marriage and family life as a “communion of persons, a sign and image of the communion of the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit."
