Couples Connect

8 SESSIONS BEGINNING OCTOBER 1, 2017 - $275 PER COUPLE INCLUDES A LOVELY DINNER

Regina’s Newest Catholic Program designed for Dating, Engaged and Newly married couples. Couples Connect is a faith based program for dating, engaged and newly-married couples that can make a real and lasting difference in your marriage! Couples connect by talking about issues that they may have touched on while dating but while going deeper they are coming to a common understanding giving their relationship a more solid footing and REAL chance for long-term survival.  

We are tackling our 50% divorce rate by giving couples communication skills that will help them thru the tough times. We also paint a pretty clear picture about the future challenges and struggles that they may face in their relationships and the tools they will need to overcome them with respect, love and understanding firmly and positively intact. CC is an 8 session program with educated, well prepared presenters who are relatable and current with their information.

We welcome all young couples who are willing to put in the time to not just have a “good" relationship but a "GREAT and lasting relationship" that will stand the test of time.For more information

The Call to Marriage


The Lord calls us in many ways, and different people answer different calls. In Genesis 2:18 The Lord God said, "It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper as his partner." and in verse 24, he says, "Therefore a man leaves his father and mother and clings to his wife, and they become one flesh." 

Marriage is officially counted among the seven sacraments. A sacrament is an outward sign of our commitment to God and for those who choose marriage, there is a responsibility that comes with it- a lifetime commitment is made to our partner and a lifetime commitment to spread God's presence to the world through the sacrament of marriage. In a sacramental marriage the couple have both the mission and the power to make Jesus present to each other, to their children, and anyone whom they touch as a couple.

To maintain a happy marriage work together to accomplish your goals as a couple. Living out your commitment is not always easy but by the grace of God all things are possible. If we remember to:

  • have open and honest communication
  • treat each other as we would like to be treated
  • be gentle with each other
  • don't try to change the other person
  • compromise - try to arrive at a mutual solution and remember we don't always get our own way
  • the question is not so much who is right, but what is right for the marriage.

Commitment is the key word in a marriage. If couples are really committed to each other they will handle the small problems before they get out of hand and rejoice in the good times knowing that their union is blessed by God. 

Keeping this in mind we know St. Paul was right when he said to the Corinthians,
Love is patient, love is kind
love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude.
It does not insist on its own way 
it is not irritable or resentful
it does not rejoice in wrongdoing but rejoices in the truth, 
It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all    things.
Love never ends. (1 Cor. 13:4-7)
