Prayer for the Home:
For Your Marriage retreat
If the Hallmark Channel is to be believed, June is the month for weddings. If it’s been a while since you celebrated your nuptials, or if you feel that the honeymoon has long been over, perhaps this July could be the month to participate in a retreat to strengthen your marriage. For Your Marriage (part of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishop’s National Pastoral Initiative for Marriage) offers several free seven-day self-directed retreats in English and in Spanish for couples who want to grow in their relationship with God and one another.
Para su Retiro Matrimonial
Si le creemos al canal de Hallmark, Junio es el mess de los matrimonios. Si han pasado algunos años desde que celebró sus nupcias, o siente que la luna de miel ha terminado, este mes de julio podría ser el mes para fortalecer su matrimonio. Para su Matrimonio (parte de la Iniciativa Pastoral Nacional para el Matrimonio de la Conferencia de los Obispos católicos de los Estados Unidos), ofrece diversos retiros sin costo de siete días en inglés y español, para parejas que buscan crecer en su relación con Dios y si mismos.
Over the past several months, Liturgy Training Publications has hosted many webinars and retreats for those working in ministry, or those looking to learn more about the faith. Recordings of many of these webinars are available here in both English and Spanish, and you can learn more about upcoming events as well.
Cultural Diversity Resources
The Catholic Apostolate Center has compiled a page of webinars and resources for those interested in learning more about the Church’s teachings around racism and xenophobia, and for those seeking to develop intercultural and interracial competencies.
