Your Marriage is Your Vocation

« All Events

October 26, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


The Catholic Church’s vision for marriage and family is a "life-giving proposal".

How do we propose this vision to others? How do we emphasise the beauty of marriage and its centrality for the good of society?

Renowned speaker Archbishop John Wilson, of Southwark Archdiocese, invites you to find out more at this unique event.

He said: "The family – that domestic church - is the foundation, the building block of our communities and the life of our church. I'll be looking at how to strengthen the life of your family, its spirituality and sense of vocation. It's also a chance to support people in the challenges they face in marriage."

Much of his talk will be based around Pope Francis' encyclical Amoris laetitia ('The Joy of Love').

Also speaking is Mary Kileen, from the Maryvale Institute.

Whether you're married, divorced, separated or single, come along and discover more.
