Marriage and Family Life

The future of humanity passes by way of the family.

Pope St. John Paul II, Familiaris Consortio 86



The family constitutes the basic cell of human society. Grounded in the love shared between a husband and wife, the Christian family becomes an icon of the Blessed Trinity. Because of these truths, the Catholic Church tirelessly upholds the importance of marriage and family life and seeks to provide the resources and support necessary for marriages and families to thrive. This task involves interacting with marriages and families in all its phases and expressions. The pages below provide this support for individuals, couples, and parishes to strengthen marriages and families throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
