Marriage & Family Life Ministries

Marriage
For parishioners planning to be married we offer local marriage counseling along with a formation day/weekend/seminar 4-8 months before their wedding presented by the Archdiocese in San Antonio.. 

Through the Dioceses in San Antonio our parishioners can take advantage of many ministry programs for marriage enrichment. For those who are experiencing difficulties in their marriage there are programs to help them come together again.  Follow this link for a full listing of programs that are offered at the Diocese of San Antonio.  

Natural Family Planning
Natural Family Planning (NFP) is the general title for the scientific, natural and moral methods of family planning that can help married couples either achieve or postpone pregnancies.We offer counseling for Natural Family Planning and have a fully certified Creighton Model practitioner for our parishioners.

A good Catholic Bible study program should help you: Deepen your faith, learn more about Christ, pray with scripture, understand how Catholic Christianity is based in scripture and learn to live your faith in your daily life.
For parishioners that have participated in an ACTS retreat and would like continue to grow their faith. Or, maybe you’re engaged, you’ve shared an anniversary or two… or twenty… and you’ve learned a lot about yourselves and each other so far and you want to learn more about God's plan for your life.  Maybe you are looking to enrich you life together.  St. Joseph's is offering this weekly couples ministry and bible study Using the"Beloved" video series.  The series has been created by some of the Church's greatest speakers and teachers.  What if marriage is more than you think it is?  Come find out!

A parish ACTS retreat  strives to achieve the directives of Vatican II and goals of the Revised Code of Canon Law of 1983 which emphasize “community and pastoral care” within a parish. The weekend allows the retreatants to experience God’s love and joy. They return to their parish with a deeper love for each other and a desire to become more involved in their parish community.
