"The Church is good for the family, and the family is good for the Church. The safeguarding of the Lord’s gift in the sacrament of matrimony is a concern not only of individual families but of the entire Christian community.” Quoting the Synod Fathers in his Exhortation on the family, Amoris Laetitia, Pope Francis reminds us of the importance of supporting and fostering strong families. All spouses and families should constantly be driven to answer the call to holiness in their own particular vocation. I encourage spouses from all across the archdiocese to attend the Together in Holiness marriage conference so that you will be strengthened in your Christian vocation and mission, strengthening your families and strengthening the Church.

Most Rev. Gustavo García-Siller, M.Sp.S.

Episcopal Advisor to the St. John Paul II Foundation
