The Marriage and Family Life Office works to promote healthy, happy, and holy family life.  We support parishes in the areas of marriage preparation, marriage enrichment; natural family planning; grief support for all ages; troubled marriage support and more. The office also assists lay Catholic organizations and apostolates in their work related to families and parishes.  This is a member office of the Office of the Domestic Church and Discipleship in the Diocese of Kansas City - St. Joseph.
