St. Anthony on the Lake believes in affirming the sacredness of marriage with our faith community.  We also recognize the stress daily life places on this bond.  Though the year, the Marriage Enrichment ministry offers opportunities for all engaged and married couples to enrich their relationship.  A variety of programs provide the setting for couples to spend time together learning, communicating and socializing. 

For more information on events or to get involved in the ministry, please contact Debbie Klimko, Director of Human Concerns & Marriage Ministry at [email protected].

Marriage Enrichment Opportunities: Calling engaged and married couples of all ages!  Take time out of your busy schedules to relax, have some fun and work on strengthening your relationship through these opportunities.  

Lucky in Love – An Evening for Couples - Saturday, March 16  6:00pm-8:30pm

Having a strong and vibrant marriage takes more than luck.  Love, laughter, faith, commitment and knowing how to meet your partner’s emotional needs all play a key role.

Join us for a buffet dinner followed with a fun presentation by Carol & Tom Sullivan on the importance of knowing your partner’s “love language”, how it changes over time, and practical ways to put it into practice.  There will also be private time for couples to identify their primary “love language” and share with each other. 

  • Registration Closed
  • Cost: $25 per couple  
  • Childcare is not available for this event
  • Registration Deadline: Monday, March 11th

In his wonderful book, "The Five Love Languages," author Gary Chapman says that each of us is entrusted with offering our love to our spouse in ways they most need.  The author says that he "is convinced that there are only five basic languages of love.  Each person has a primary love language.  If you don't learn how to speak your spouse's primary love language, he or she will eventually lose their feelings of positive regard toward you. If you speak your spouse's primary love language, you keep emotional love alive in the relationship." 

Join us for an evening of fun as you learn each other's love needs and how to speak their language!  The evening will include Mass, a romantic dinner, presentation, dessert and private couple sharing.
