  • "The family is the basic building block of God's design for humanity and is truly the Domestic Church.  This explains why the Evil One so often chooses to attack families and why programs like Together in Holiness are so vital for our families to thrive.  Every married couple can benefit from this conference, and I encourage all to register and attend this important day."

    • Pastor, St. Jude Catholic Church
  • "I would like to invite you and your spouse to attend the Together in Holiness conference that we are helping to sponsor at St. Jude parish. Marriage is the most important and fundamental vocation in the Catholic Church; without it there can be no others! We invite you to come and learn how God and your Catholic community can help strengthen your calling to live as husband and wife."

Program Director, St. John Paul II Foundation

Joshua P. Bitting, Ph.D., serves as Program Director at the St. John Paul II Foundation where he oversees the Together in Holiness Formation series, a year-round marriage enrichment for small communities of spouses. Born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, Joshua came into full communion with the Catholic Church on June 22nd, 2003, the Feast of Corpus Christi while completing his B.A. in philosophy at Southwestern College (Winfield, Kansas). Joshua attended Franciscan University of Steubenville where he earned his M.A. in theology. Afterwards, he had the opportunity to study at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (Santa Croce) in Rome, Italy. Since then, he has served the Church in various capacities at both the parish and diocesan levels. He recently completed his Ph.D. in theology and catechetics from the University of Notre Dame, Australia. Joshua and his beautiful wife, Amanda, have seven children, and enjoy sharing the Gospel of the family in their primary vocation as spouses and parents.

Executive Directors, One In Christ Marriage

Mark and Michelle are both cradle Catholics, married for 16 years, and are parishioners at Holy Rosary.  After many years of volunteer ministry work, they felt called to leave their corporate jobs to devote their time to serving the Church with a specific focus on the Sacrament of Marriage.  They serve as Executive Directors of One In Christ Marriage, journeying with over 1,000+ engaged and married couples on their path to heaven through the Sacrament of Matrimony. Their work is recommended by priests and doctors alike.  Clinical Psychologist Dr. John Cadwallader stated, “The One in Christ does an excellent job of integrating health of the mind, body, and soul.” Msgr. Joseph Schaedel affirms, “It creatively, effectively, and pastorally addresses the most critical issues concerning marriage and family life in contemporary society.”  Physician Dr. Casey Delcoco M.D. shared, “One In Christ transforms couples’ outlooks on marriage, sexuality, and family planning.” They have been featured multiple times in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis newspaper The Criterion and on the popular Faith in Action radio show on Catholic Radio Indy.  They are also active members of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem.

Parishioners at St. Luke Catholic Church

Matt and Julie Miller are both cradle Catholics that met in college and got married at the tender age of 21. In the intervening 20+ years, they’ve been in a process of continual conversion that will one day, God willing, lead to sainthood. Along the way, they’ve welcomed five children into their family, have homeschooled them (mostly), and hope in their eventual sainthood, too. Matt and Julie taught NFP for 14 years, have presented for various marriage preparation for 16 years, and have run a weekly small faith formation and sharing group from their home for the last 13 years. They credit consecrating their family to Jesus, through Mary, in 2009 as being a turning point in their spiritual lives and are Disciple Life members of the Apostolate for Family Consecration. Matt and Julie reside in Indianapolis, IN where they are parishioners at St. Luke Catholic Church.
