Special Needs Ministry
“Because of the intense attacks on marriage in our society, it is imperative that we improve our efforts to build and nurture strong Christian marriages in our Diocese. The formation and continuing support we give to couples entering into matrimony is perhaps the most important project we undertake.”
—Bishop Joseph Strickland, Constitution on Teaching (18)
