Come enjoy a meal and get ready for Valentine’s Day by asking all of your burning questions about marriage to a panel of married couples!! The first 45 minutes we’ll spend all together and you’ll have a chance to ask questions of the couples, and then the last 30 minutes we’ll break apart into male-female groups to go deeper into the nature of man and the nature of woman. Come learn more about YOUR vocation within the Church by attending this evening of fun!!
