National Marriage Week 2023
The observances of National Marriage Week (February 7-14) and World Marriage Day (Sunday, February 12) are an opportunity to focus on building a culture of life and love that begins with supporting and promoting marriage and the family. Our theme for 2023 is “Marriage…one flesh, given and received.”
Marriage Week Resources
This week, celebrate and enrich your marriage by taking some time each day to listen to the Word of God, meditate, reflect, and pray together. Every day, read and meditate on a passage from Scripture followed by a re-imagined story.
