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.

  • "Together in Holiness provides a much-needed support for Catholic families who often feel alone as they work to raise children to be saints. This year's focus on the family as a seedbed of vocations helps to keep the ultimate goal, the holiness of spouses and children, as a clear vision for families. Taking the time to attend this conference, to focus in prayer and listen to our speakers, will allow married couples the opportunity to refocus and to leave strengthened in the Spirit of God which unites them."

    • Pastor, St. Jude Catholic Church

    • "The Christian life is one of ongoing conversion. Too often in our day the call for ongoing conversion is lost to married couples. Together in Holiness provides the opportunity to embrace the grace of this call for conversion to a greater and deeper love of one another in and through Christ. "
    • - Rev. C. Ryan McCarthy
      • Pastor, Holy Rosary Catholic Church
