Marriage Movements

Catholic Family Groups & Movements

During a cultural tide that in many ways undermines Catholic marriage and family life, it can be difficult for families to faithfully persevere in their vocation and mission without the support of others. Sharing life’s joys and challenges with families and friends who share the same vision and commitment to Christian family life is very important.

There are many ways in which couples and families can come together to be of mutual support and encouragement.

Listed below are the contacts of ecclesial movements, family groups, organizations and communities who have ecclesial recognition and operate within the Diocese of San Bernardino.

The Marriage Encounter Weekend is a positive and personal experience for a couple, which offers them a technique of loving communication that they can use for the rest of their lives. It's an opportunity to look deeply into their relationship with each other and with God. Also, it's a time to share their feelings, their hopes, fears, joys and frustrations. Marriage Encounter is a Catholic expression open to all happily-married couples regardless of faith, race, age, education, or financial status.
