Marriage and Family Counseling
All marriages go through ups and downs. Many couples have found help for their marriages and personal growth through counseling. If you are in need of assistance please contact a Catholic counselor for support or call the Office of Family Life at 301-853-4546.
Each June the archdiocesan Office of Family Life celebrates marriage through a Jubilarian Mass for couples celebrating 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50 or 50 years of marriage. Couples register a couple of months in advance through their parishes.
