What our couples are saying.

Witness to Love re-enforced that the sacrament of marriage is a gift of unending grace that helps to sustain our marriage. Young couples need to know the truth about their faith and marriage. Witness to Love presents this truth through real people and their stories as well as the mentors' stories.

Mentor Couple Gaynal and Ann, Lafayette, La

I truly believe that marriage programs such as Witness to Love are huge benefits for married or engaged couples wanting to be successful in their marriage. These events and/or programs that can benefit families as a whole, allow families of the parish to socialize and spread their faith and love while also spending quality time together.

WTL Couple Payton and Cody Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux, LA

Although we entered the Witness to Love Civil Marriage Initiative prep program with a strong, committed marriage we definitely grew in Trust, Forgiveness and Accountability as we went through our marriage preparation. Our marriage is stronger than ever.

Civilly Married Couple Karl and Jill Archdiocese of Seattle, WA

Witness to Love has helped us to be more open to expressing our faith and relationship with others. We plan to continue to go to mass with our mentor couple on a regular basis, connecting with our church community with our mentor couple and we hope to become more involved in the parish.

WTL Couple Jason and Allison, Diocese of Lansing, MI

We love getting to know the families in our parish, and feel like the more that we can do to strengthen marriages that our children see, the more likely they are to pursue healthy Christian relationships and marriages themselves. We are blessed to have taken part in nurturing these relationships through Witness to Love, so that they can be that example to the families in our parish community.

Mentor Couple Christopher and Stefania, Dallas, TX    

We were able to hear experiences on how sacramental marriage is lived out in daily life from married couples and related to their stories so it was very meaningful to our own married life. The Be More Retreat is for all couples whether engaged, dating, or civilly married because the lessons and resources in the retreat draw couples to Christ and his divine love.

Convalidating Couple Wendi and Peter, Diocese of Lafayette, LA

Witness to Love is not only a positive experience for engaged couples but as a result was a positive experience for us as a married couple. Our church community has brought us closer in general as a couple.
