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.
