Archives Registration for family life conference is open

March 21, 2018

Massena – Registration is open for a day-long workshop on marriage and family life April 14 at Trinity Catholic School and Sacred Heart Church.

The workshop “Marriage: God Calls, We Respond,” will be presented by the diocesan Department of Family Life, in conjunction with the Offices of Vocations and Evangelization.

The keynote speakers for the conference will be Dr. Gregory and Lisa Popcak. They are directors of the Pastoral Solutions Institute, an organization dedicated to helping Catholics find faith-filled solutions to tough marriage, family, and personal problems.

Stephen Tartaglia, director of the Department of Family Life, said that “This conference aims to build up marriage and family life in the North Country and help married couples and those thinking of marriage understand the importance of the vocation of marriage as a path to holiness for themselves, their spouse and their children. 

“The family is the basic building block of society, and as such, strengthening family life through strong and resilient marriages, helps build up a culture of love and stability,” Tartaglia said.

He said that the conference is aimed at:
• Anyone interested in better understanding and/or promoting the Catholic view of marriage, especially Commissioned Lay Ministers, those working with engaged couples, marriage counseling, struggling marriages;

• Married couples, whether longtime married or newlyweds who want a deeper insight into married life and how to live it better;

• Young adults considering marriage and older teens, mature enough to hear what the sacrament of matrimony is all about.

Registration may be made at www.rcdony.org/marriage or by contacting the Family Life office at 315-393-2920, ext. 1420. The cost  for the day is $20.
