Marriage Enrichment

Keeping your marriage alive and healthy     

 It is important that married couples do things together to keep their marriages alive and healthy. Prayer, good communication and fun as well as dedicated time together for ongoing growth and understanding are all necessary tools.

The Basilica of Saint Mary offers a variety of enrichment events for married couples— some on a regular basis and others occasionally. 

Rock Solid Marriages

For married couples in their 20s and 30s (or those married less than 10 years) who want to grow closer together and with God.

Get involved with a fun group as you grow in faith together, meet other couples, and pursue God's word using scripture to guide discussion and deepen your relationship.

Throughout the year, we discuss a variety of topics that strengthen and encourage healthy marriages, and offer specific gatherings and events.

Marriage Booster​

Share your successful marriage as a Marriage Mentor Couple

 An opportunity as a couple for enrichment and volunteering at the same time.

If you have thought or talked about getting involved at The Basilica, perhaps the Marriage Mentor Ministry is for you.

Together with your spouse, you’ll work two-on-two with some of our many engaged couples preparing for marriage. The amount of time it takes is up to you. It’s a very rewarding and fun ministry that also can improve your own marriage. Contact Nancy at 612.317.3478 to find out more about this ministry and upcoming training.
