Strong Marriages for San Antonio!

Are you frustrated by the trouble you see in marriages in your congregation?

Are you saddened by the divorce of couples and the break-up of families?

We want to help you.

You are invited to a free event. It is an evening of encouragement that will lift your spirit as you hear how churches in communities all over this country are fighting back in a dynamic movement that is sweeping the nation and helping to improve the health of marriages & families among their congregants.

On June 30th at 7:00 p.m. listen, as you enjoy dessert and coffee, to how Mike and Harriet McManus have assisted over 10,000 priests and pastors in 229 cities and 44 states. Over 25 years ago they started what is now widely known as the Community Marriage Policy.

This event is sponsored by an ecumenical body of clergy throughout San Antonio. Location to be announced.

For more information, call Carl Caton at 210-651-5050.

Is It Time for a Revival of Marriage in San Antonio?
by Carl Caton, San Antonio
There's an old adage that says “It's always darkest before the dawn.”
That aptly describes where we are with the divorce culture in our country. And in San Antonio, like everywhere else, families are struggling to make sense of the chaos created by the atrophy of marriage. <more...>
