Marriage Enrichment Program Sign Up

Submissions for this form are closed.

A new marriage enrichment program will be offered starting Jan. 4, 2018.

St. Gertrude Parish is pleased to again offer “Discovering our Deepest Desire” or DoDD. This program is to promote and strengthen one of the church’s most fundamental Sacraments and enrich marriages in our parish community and beyond. DoDD has two key tenets: First, it helps couples renew their understanding of what their Sacramental Marriage means, and secondly, to rediscover each other by making their relationship and covenant a higher priority in the midst of busy lives. The weekly sessions can be a date night comprising of lecture, small group activities and one-on-one time with your spouse. The series is written by Greg Schutte, MSW, LISW-S. Greg is a Catholic husband, father and the Director of Marriage Works! Ohio. This year we are blessed to have the seminar presented by Mary LeGouellec, M.Ed., LPC, Andrea and Jon Patch, and Mary Kay and Jim Hochhausler. DoDD is comprised of 12 weekly sessions that begin on Thursday, January 4, 2018, and will continue every Thursday evening through March 22, 2018. The sessions are held in the St. Gertrude School cafeteria from 7:00 to 9:00pm. Class size is limited to 15 couples, so early registration is critical as we have a waiting list each year. There is no cost to attend, but we will collect a free-will offering at the end of the seminar.

To learn more about DoDD, our Couple presenters, Andrea and Jon Patch, will give a brief presentation before all of the Masses on December 2 and 3. Registration will open after the 4:30pm Mass and continue through December 3 (after all Masses) at the DoDD registration table in the St. Dominic Lobby. You can also register online beginning December 3. Please see future bulletin announcements for online registration instructions. If you have additional questions, contact AnnaMaria Spurgin, Wedding Coordinator, at or 561-5954, ext. 1124.
