  This is a letter sent to Priests and married couples in parishes.
An Invitation from the Marriage and Family Life Ministry Agency for Evangelisation


Parishes, movements, schools and other Church institutions can help in a variety of ways to support families and help them grow… The life of every family is marked by all kinds of crises, yet these are also part of its dramatic beauty.
Couples should be helped to realize that surmounting a crisis need not weaken their relationship; instead, it can improve, settle and mature the wine of their union. (AMORIS LÆTITIA para 229)
The Marriage and Family Life Ministry within the Agency for Evangelisation invites you to take part in an initiative to help, by attending with, couples or husbands or wives alone, who are interested in this ministry of ‘accompanying married couples on their way’ to experience the Smart Loving Breakthrough Workshop.
 Thereafter, they will receive all the necessary training (including a Marriage Enrichment Retreat for their own marriage, free of charge) to make the Workshop available to others in your own parish. Smart Loving Break Through is a three-hour workshop primarily designed to renew hope and encourage couples to attend further weekend sessions together.
It is a practical, solution-focused workshop for all stages of marriage. Drawing on contemporary research and Catholic theology, this workshop provides skills and insights to transform marriage relationships into the thriving, joy-filled encounter that they are meant to be. 

For more information and to register for a place on ONE of the days contact family@rcdow.org.uk or 0207931 6064
