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.

  • "This was the perfect bite-sized conference where every detail was handled so well that all that was left for us to do was to be filled by amazing speakers, generous hosts, and TIME to spend reconnecting with each other on how we can achieve our daily mission of bringing Jesus into our home. Every presentation had a concrete action that would take little effort on our part but would make a big impact in our marriage and family. We are truly blessed and can’t thank y’all enough!"
