SIX DATES FOR CATHOLIC COUPLES: The Virtues
Beginning September 2019
Six Saturday nights designed to help strengthen your marriage, childcare included. About one evening a month, come to the parish center to drop off the children, watch a short video, and have plenty of time for you and your spouse to go to dinner and reflect on your marriage.
The topics: the four Cardinal Virtues: prudence, justice, courage and temperance. Like four hinges that open the door to success in life, these virtues help us grow and mature as persons.
"Moderation and prudence, justice and fortitude, and nothing in life is more useful than these." (Wisdom 8:5-7)
