Effective Immediately, due to the current “stay at home” orders issued for Tarrant County and the City of Fort Worth all physically scheduled Marriage Preparation classes are postponed. We will offer online marriage preparation option in the interim to assist all couples preparing for the sacrament of Holy Matrimony. Since these classes will be smaller, we ask that those couples getting married after July 2020, please wait to register until we are able to service the couples who have already signed up. Please check this website for further instructions.

Role of Christian Family

The role of the Christian family in the modern world serves as the model to impart in the hearts and minds of the faithful the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The Gospel is to be received and lived in order to foster the work of the Church.

  • Within the context of marriage, man and woman are called to a total self-gift of love to one another within the bonds of Holy Matrimony.
  • Great care must be taken to foster a sound family structure. Preparation is important towards understanding any sacrament. The Church serves as truth, beauty, and goodness for the family effectively cultivating the role centered on Christ.
  • The role of the family must never be diminished by any external force contrary to the mission of Christ. In love, the beauty of family shall persevere in all its splendor and glory because it is gift from God to his creation.
