The aim of this resource is to encourage families, parishes and schools to build on the popularity of St Valetine’s Day to affirm the value of romantic, married love. If you are a teacher, youth minister or you assist in your local parish, this is a great resource for the weekend!

Courting vs. Dating | What's the Difference?

Last edited 9th February 2015

There are lively debates around courting vs dating. The concept of courting may sound outdated to some in our modern world. When hearing the term, many have images of their grandparents being chaperoned by their parents with their special someone. In those days, courting was about getting to know your potential partner as much as possible in a safe, pure environment. Often, these courtships led to successful marriages that lasted lifelong.

The Freedom of Boundaries

Last edited 1st February 2015

Most people hear the word, “boundaries” and automatically bring up the question: “How far can we go physically without crossing a line?” Of course, that’s an important question to consider, but in fact there is far more to it than that. Yes, boundaries can be physical. But they can also be emotional, or even conversational. For me, respecting my own boundaries with other people is essential: it’s one of the primary ways that I learn to respect myself!

You're a Great Man: 29 Catholic Girls Explain Why

Last edited 28th January 2015

Sometimes I hear girls complain about the fact that they can’t find any good guys. I don’t know what they’re talking about. They are everywhere and I am blessed to have the privilege to know so many of them. I see great men in my grandfathers, my father, brothers, uncles, cousins, friends, co-workers, boyfriends, and neighbors.

How my Life Changed Forever after I got the Depo Provera Birth Control Injection

Last edited 7th January 2015

I got married to Doug in 2005. I knew that we wanted to delay having children for a while, and I had tried pretty much every hormonal birth control method under the sun. I had not, however, gotten the Depo Provera birth control injection. It seemed like a pretty worry-free method.

Do Children Have to Be So Expensive?

Last edited 23rd December 2014

Presents somehow sneak their way into being a significant focus for adults and children alike at Christmas time especially. I'm not overly enjoying watching television at the moment because of the constant advertisements about another "one day only sale" (which is actually on again in two days time!) that blare their way into our living room and our family consciousness. You might want to re-consider your focus this Christmas season in light of this expert research:

Seven Things I Wish My Pastor Knew About My Homosexuality

Last edited 10th December 2014

"May I make two requests? Continue to love me, but remember that you cannot be more merciful than God. It isn’t mercy to affirm same-sex acts as good. Practice compassion according to the root meaning of “compassion”: Suffer with me. Don’t compromise truth; help me to live in harmony with it. I’m asking you to help me take up my cross and follow Jesus."
