Our diocese has begun a unique journey to promote, support, strengthen and protect marriage as the foundation of every Christian family. We, the Diocese of San Bernardino, see the need for a more specialized attention to the vocation of marriage. We have launched a five year Marriage initiative through the diocesan Office of Catechetical Ministry.
“Our goal is to become a “Marriage-Building Church” by promoting a comprehensive approach to ongoing education for the vocation of the Sacrament of Marriage at all stages of life. By doing this, we hope to create a culture in which Christian marriage education is seen as an integral part of people’s lives in becoming the domestic church.”
