About Together in Holiness

Where Spouses Discover God’s Plan for Their Family
Together in Holiness is a marriage conference series for dioceses that inspires spouses to grow together in holiness and empowers parents to form their children in the Catholic faith. To learn more about the Together in Holiness marriage enrichment initiative, click here.
  • "It is my great joy to welcome the first Together in Holiness conference to the Diocese of Charleston. I strongly encourage that all married and engaged couples join me at this event, where spouses can spend a day in prayer and conversation with the Lord and one another. Since this conference is taking place during the year of the Eucharistic Revival, we will have a theme of creating Eucharistic Marriages. By partaking in this Sacramental mystery, we can all grow in communion within our own families."
  • - Most Rev. Jacques Fabre-Jeune, CS Bishop of Charleston

CY AND LEAH HAMOY
Co-Area Heads of South Carolina – Couples for Christ

Cyreano and Leah Hamoy have been married for 23 years, and have three children. Their youngest attends St. Anthony, where they have been parishioners since 2012. As a family, they enjoy glamping, watching movies, and playing scrabble. They joined Couples for Christ in 2006 and were immediately assigned as household leaders in their town. They serve the Lord via Christian Life Programs, first in English, and recently in Spanish in nearby towns. Couples for Christ helped them to grow individually and as a couple by teaching them how to be patient with each other and to raise their children against the secular tide. Through the teachings in CFC, they learned how to respond to their kids’ toughest questions. In their own words, they claim to have been selfish with their time, talent, and treasure before CFC, and now realize that like in the parable of the talents, they must share theirs as God wills. They learned to love their closest neighbor, inside and outside of their family, and seek to see Jesus in everyone. Through CFC, they learned the quintessence of their existence and to let God’s will be fulfilled in their lives.
