Marriage and Family

As you prepare for marriage, we invite you to be a part of the Genesis Marriage Community, where you will meet other engaged and newly married couples as well as married couples from around the Archdiocese of Cincinnati who want to share this exciting journey of married life with you.

It all begins with GENESIS, the one-day retreat for engaged couples. On the GENESIS retreat, also known as Pre-Cana, you will deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ and one another. You will meet other engaged couples as you begin the journey towards your wedding day where “authentic married love is caught up into divine love.”

NOTE: YOU ONLY NEED ONE TICKET PER COUPLE!

The Marriage and Family Evangelization team will offer a free formation course over five sessions to equip leaders to accompany and evangelize engaged couples through the marriage catechumenate and into their married life. Topics include St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body as it relates to the sacrament of marriage, canon law issues in marriage preparation, sexual morality in marriage, and an introduction to Natural Family Planning. A certificate will be given at the completion of the course. Interested couples must have the written recommendation by their pastor to enroll in the course. This course will be held both in-person at St. Ignatius Loyola in Cincinnati as well as virtually. Please note, babysitting will not be available.

Class Dates: Sept. 6 & 20, Oct. 4 & 18, and Nov. 15.

Marriage and Family Leaders’ Statement of Good Standing: Parish leaders witness by their lives to the truth and goodness of the Church’s teachings on marriage and family, and must be in good standing in their parish. If parish leaders are married, their marriage should be blessed by Christ, i.e. they should be sacramentally married. Those who are single (never married) or separated from their spouse and living a chaste life may attend the course with the recommendation of their parish priest, who will vouch for the individual’s good standing in the parish. All individuals who are in an irregular marriage situation may contact Adriana Vasquez at 513-263-6648 for guidance on whether or not it is the right time to become a parish marriage and family leader.
