Marriage and Family Life

Marriage is, and always has been, an integral and intricate part of God's plan. The vocation to marriage is written in the very nature of man and woman and is truly a gift from God.

"The matrimonial covenant, by which a man and a woman establish between themselves a partnership of the whole of life, is by its nature ordered toward the good of the spouses and the procreation and education of offspring; this covenant between baptized persons has been raised by Christ the Lord to the dignity of a sacrament." (CC 1601)
