Confused about marriage? You're not alone

Church teachings on marriage a mystery to many, says CFS counsellor.

Too often, says Catholic Family Services counsellor Roy MacIntyre, Catholics facing separation and/or divorce or wondering about an annulment are confused about what the Church teaches about marriage.

Lots of people, he said, feel like failures and stop going to church just when they need the comforts of the sacraments most.

There's a lot of misinformation out there, says MacIntyre. "We're going to try to fix that."

MacIntyre will address marriage issues on separation, divorce, and annulment at a workshop on June 18 at Immaculate Conception Parish in Delta from 10 a.m. to noon. The course fee is $10 a person. To register phone Catholic Family Services at 604-443-3220.
