Resources for Married Couples
To encourage strong, faithful marriages, Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Parish wants to inform you of several programs for married couples.
For Your Marriage
The United States Catholic Conference of Bishops (from its Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth) maintains a website ForYourMarriage.org with helpful information for married couples.
Worldwide Marriage Encounter (WWME) is a worthy spiritual movement recognized by the Catholic Church that helps married couples to enrich their married life by growing in relationship to God and one another. We have occasional WWME activities at our parish or visit the organization’s website at www.bq-wwme.org for nearby activities in Brooklyn/Queens.
Retrouvaille (French word for rediscovery) is a program that can provide a lifeline for troubled marriages. Please call 1-800-470-2230 or visit the official Retrouvaille website at www.retrouvaille.org. There is a chapter serving the Long Island/Metro NYC area that has upcoming programs at the Immaculate Conception Seminary in Huntington, NY.
