Marriage and Family Ministries Training

God wants every family to be a beacon of the joy of his love in our world. (Pope Francis, World Meeting of Families, 2018)

It is a wonderful blessing to be called to walk with engaged couples, marriages, and families. Your ministry can bring the light and the joy our families desperately need. To appropriately serve engaged couples, marriages, and families in our communities, the Archdiocese of San Antonio offers a variety of trainings and formation opportunities to parish and deanery leaders.
