    Comments of Couples

    “It was such a good experience and we were so glad to be here today.”

    “Thank you for giving us opportunities to discuss openly these subjects. The day was so enjoyable and well planned!”

    “The Theology of the Body talk was incredible – I wish all my college friends could hear them talk!”

    “I am not Catholic but am very intrigued by the faith. Today answered many questions about the faith that I know will be apparent for the rest of our lives.”

    “I realized you can always grow from each other. Just because not everything is the same about you, doesn’t mean you aren’t compatible with one another.”

    “I liked the positives and negatives that were discussed of what we learned; marriage is from family, society and environment.
