God's Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage is required for all couples seeking marriage at Our Lady of Perpetual Help. Retreats are held 6 times a year. While this retreat focuses on the engaged couple, many married couples have attended and found the program to be very beneficial for their marriage.
Instruction in the Creighton Model FertilityCare System is available in our parish. This method of Natural Family Planning is a safe, effective and moral means of achieving or avoiding pregnancy, treating infertility and other reproductive issues. Through instruction in FertilityCare couples can better understand the gift and beauty of their fertility.
The Family to Family Ministry provides meals and care packages to families in the parish community during times of need. We provide meals after the birth of a child, during serious illness hospitalization. We have also provided meals during cancer treatments and following an unexpected death. The purpose of this ministry is to provide support from one family to another during both the sorrows and joys of family life. If you would like to join this ministry or know someone who would benefit from a set of meals or a care package contact Lindy Meyer.
