Transformed in Love

When a team of married couples, priests, religious, and theologians come together, incredible things happen. The result of this collaboration, led by Marriage Ministries through your support of the Catholic Appeal, came to fruition in the form of a new marriage preparation program, Transformed in Love.

With your generosity, Marriage Ministries has revolutionized marriage preparation through Transformed in Love. By seamlessly weaving together the theology of sacramental marriage with practical skills, couples gain the tools and knowledge they need to build a strong foundation for married life.

Katie and Benjy Sung, a newlywed couple who went through the program said, “Transformed in Love was undoubtedly one of the best things we did during our engagement. We came into the program looking to learn more about each other and the Catholic Church’s teachings on marriage, and we came out of the program enriched, enlightened, and totally excited to be husband and wife. The beauty of Transformed in Love is that it centers on Church teaching, which allowed us to more fully understand the truth about sacramental Marriage. In that context, we learned how to utilize practical tools to build a strong foundation for our marriage and our future family.”

To date, over 1,000 men and women have participated in the Transformed in Love program.

On behalf of Cardinal Seán and all whose marriages have been made stronger as a result of Marriage Ministries, thank you for your generous support of the Catholic Appeal.
