Partnership announcement!
From MIC Director Bill Wacker:

I am pleased to announce that Marriage in Christ is actively working to partner with other ministries and organizations that support strong marriages and family life in Christ. One such organization is the Cana Family Institute. Their Cana Experience is a dynamic opportunity for mothers of young children (birth through 5th grade) who are looking for the next step after the Marriage in Christ Seminar. Through small groups and retreats, mothers journey together, strengthening all relationships in their lives, especially with Christ, their husbands, and their children.  
It is our joint hope that those who complete the Cana Experience will become leaders in their parish and school ministries, including being Marriage in Christ host couples.
We are excited to work together to build strong marriages and families for the greater glory of the Lord.

Celebrating Marriage in Christ
Twenty-five people including coach couples, host couples and clergy gathered at the home of Jim & Gina Kadera on August 16, 2019, to celebrate the launch of the Marriage in Christ seminar in several churches across the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon. Guest speakers included Auxiliary Bishop Peter Smith, Joel Kibler and MIC coach couple Terry & Sally Aman. Attendees applauded enthusiastically on learning that the seminar will be piloted this Fall in Spanish at Holy Redeemer Catholic Church!

Why pray?
Praying together is one of the good habits we introduce to couples in the Marriage in Christ seminar. The Institute for Family Studies recently wrote an article on praying together as a married couple.
