Domestic Church is a group that came to America from Poland. It was started by a priest friend of Pope St John Paul II. The program is designed to help married couples grow in faith and use the graces of the sacrament of marriage to encourage each other on their path to heaven by focusing on couples’ daily prayer, family prayer, and better communication utilizing a monthly couples’ dialogue.
Families support each other in this endeavor by meeting monthly (about 8 couples per group) to discuss formation topics and hold each other accountable to monthly prayer, etc. Father Miller will attend these group meetings also. Couples attend an introductory Evangelization Retreat, then annual Family Retreats are available and encouraged.
