The National Catholic Register recently featured an article by Lori Hadacek Chaplin about National Marriage Week. The article featured marriage experts who talk about the reasons why marriage must be protected. Additionally, they suggest ways to strengthen marriages and advise parishes to promote marriage-enriching activities and events.
Both Brian Barcaro, CEO of CatholicMatch, and Robyn Lee, managing editor of CatholicMatch Institute were quoted.
Barcaro talks about the importance of National Catholic Marriage week and the good it’s doing: “There are 27 million single Catholics in the United States, and many of them are convinced of the good of marriage and desire to get married. CatholicMatch Institute is trying to bring attention to National Marriage Week by amplifying what other organizations are doing to support married couples and the marriage-minded.”
Robyn Lee adds that the Institute also sees the importance of ministering to single Catholics who wish to be married. “If we can help more singles better understand and prepare for marriage, then the end result should be healthier marriages. This in turn could reduce the number of divorces and hurting marriages and provide a better environment for God to call men and women to the religious life.”
