An exciting marriage ministry uniquely created at
We see it almost every day: Marriage is under attack by our society. Its sanctity is doubted and even ridiculed. Its foundation has been severely weakened. What can we do to protect this institution of marriage that we hold so dear? LOVE STRONG in our marriage, and help as many others as we can to LOVE STRONG in their marriages as well.
The LOVESTRONG Marriage Ministry is a special marriage apostolate founded at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in San Antonio, TX. Inspired by existing Catholic marriage ministries, the LOVESTRONG Marriage Ministry was uniquely created in 2014 by Father Carlos Velazquez and Holy Spirit parish couples who felt God’s strong calling to minister to marriages in our community.
The purpose of the LOVESTRONG Marriage Ministry is simple: to strengthen the Christ-centered love and relationships between married men and women in our Parish. Strong marriages make strong families, and strong families are the cornerstones of a vibrant and dynamic Catholic community.
The LOVESTRONG Marriage Retreat is a Friday evening to Sunday afternoon weekend hosted by LOVESTRONG layperson married couples. This wonderful 3-day event celebrates the purpose of your marriage and the love you share while allowing you both the flexibility to spend the evenings together at home.
The LOVESTRONG Marriage Retreat is packed with special presentations, exercises, music, and activities designed to celebrate and reinforce each couple’s commitment to each other and a deepening of their Christ-centered bond.
LOVESTRONG Date Night meetings take place in February, December, and in the weeks following each Retreat. Please check the “Calendar” to see when our next Date Night takes place. The LOVESTRONG Date Night meetings function as an opportunity for any and all married couples to further edify and spiritually strengthen their marriage. The Date Nights typically run from 6:30pm until 8:30pm on a Friday evening.
Give each other the gift of TIME TOGETHER and enjoy a weekend and/or a Date Night together celebrating your marriage!
God bless, and Live Love Strong!
