Philadelphia, Pa., Mar 29, 2017 / 02:02 am
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia has announced a new initiative on marriage and family life: a three-year course which will be offered to both the clergy and lay people throughout its parishes.
"There is a serious need to shift our previous approach to marriage and family life which ignores the consequences of poor catechesis and the lack of personal encounter to a more evangelical and relational approach," the archdioceses said in a press release.
The extensive program, titled Remain in My Love, will direct its focus at a different target audience every year for three years. The outreach will begin in May 2017 and will end in December 2019.
The first year will specifically address the staff members of the Archdiocesan Pastoral Center, and will focus on the theme of "renewing our mission in service to married couples and families."
