Useful articles for couples & clergy

It is the aim of the Marriage Council to support couples through all aspects of marriage – whether preparing for life–long commitment to one another, or for support throughout your lives together. The following articles have been developed over the years of the Marriage Council which we believe help couples, but also clergy who are supporting couples. Should you wish to find out more, please contact Aisling Sheridan at Aisling.Sheridan@rcbcoi.org or look on our Facebook page.
