Sposi Novelli’s mission is to engage and support married couples through the first five years of marriage by creating a community that fosters a sense of support and belonging.  Through formation, reflection, and awareness, a couple’s marital relationship with God at the center is strengthened and made more fruitful.  Discipleship becomes more intentional through opportunities to steward others in service, participation, and partnering with other parish ministries.  Sposi Novelli hosts several formal and many informal events throughout the year.

Healing is Rooted in Holiness

By Bishop Andrew Cozzens

The U.S. bishops are about to gather in Baltimore for their annual meeting Nov. 12-15. Given the current crisis the Church finds herself in, this meeting will be very important, even historic. It will begin with a day of prayer, specifically requested by Pope Francis, as we seek wisdom and strength for purifying and healing our Church. The next three days of the conference will be focused on several different concrete proposals which seek ways of promoting greater accountability for bishops. As is normally the case, the first three days of the conference are televised live by EWTN and also live-streamed on the Internet. Many people will be tuned in to see what the bishops are saying and what concrete action steps can be taken.

I want to ask all the Catholics of the archdiocese to please pray for your bishops during this time. A daily rosary, an extra Holy Hour at one of our adoration chapels or offering your participation at daily Mass would be a great gift to give to the Church during this time.
