St. Malachy Catholic Church Marriage on Purpose Ministry
“As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.” ~Pope St. John Paul the Great
We believe that holy marriages are essential for a holy Church. Too often we hear about the crisis of vocations in the Church and think of priests and sisters, but much of the crisis is actually in sacramental marriages. To give perspective, in recent decades ordinations have declined 38%, but sacramental marriages have declined 70%. Combined with the staggering rate of divorce, marriages are in trouble.
We want to uphold the goodness of marriage by giving couples hope and support to live and model holy marriages.
St. Malachy's Marriage on Purpose Ministry holds monthly date nights, hosts a formal each year, and puts on an annual marriage conference in the Indianapolis area.
