In holding families as the fundamental keystone to society, the first community to which every person belongs, the Office of Formation and Discipleship provides support, training assistance, and resources for parish ministry leadership so that they may more effectively prepare couples for marriage, strengthen marriages, and care for the family.
Marriage Today Newsletter
The Office of Formation and Discipleship’s Marriage, Family and Pastoral Care Ministry strives to foster a greater connection between the Archdiocese of Atlanta and all of the marriage, family and pastoral care ministers, laity and clergy.
Marriage Today is a quarterly newsletter featuring information of interest to ministry leaders in all of these areas: pastoral care, marriage prep, marriage enrichment, bereavement, and family.
Each issue includes news, formation and training opportunities, diocesan initiatives, featured resources, best practices, and events.
Marriage – Unique for a Reason
Marriage: Unique for a Reason offers resources to assist with the education and catechesis of Catholics on why marriage is unique and why it should be promoted and protected as the union of one man and one woman. Each of the videos in this initiative, with its companion written material, is intended to be used by a priest, deacon, catechist, or teacher.
