The Archdiocese of Johannesburg invites married couples to explore and enrich their relationship by registering for The Marriage Course online, hosted for the Archdiocese of Johannesburg family desk.
The Catholic church has acknowledged the importance of a strong marriage as the foundation of a strong family, which in turn builds a strong Christian community. The Marriage Course is designed for any couple that want to invest in their relationship. It covers a range of practical tools such as communication and conflict resolution. Whether couples have been married six months or 40 years, are in a good place or are struggling, The Marriage Course offers practical support to strengthen relationships.

Starting Date: 8 September at 7:30 pm

The Marriage Couse is online and will be run on Zoom, once the hosts have introduced the topic for the evening, couples watch the videos in a session with their own videos off and they are muted. There will be hosts available should they need assistance. But there are No Group Discussions. There are breaks in the video where couples will work through their relationship with The Marriage Course Journals. Although there is no cost for the online course, we suggest that couples invest in 2 copies of the Marriage Course Journal in which they complete exercises during the session each week. Alternatively, couples who sign up will receive a free digital journal to print out each week.
The Archdiocese of Johannesburg encourages all married couples to consider how they can strengthen and grow their marriages especially during this difficult time.
