The Office of Family Life exists to provide support for families through various programs and to serve as a resource for parishes engaging in the building up and the fostering of the Catholic family.
The Office of Family Life offers marriage preparation and enrichment, ministry to the bereaved, to the divorced and separated, to marriages in crisis, and gives instruction in natural family planning. It is involved as well in various works promoting pro-life causes such as Project Gabriel and Rachel's Vineyard.
In essence, the Office of Family Life seeks to enhance the Church's vital role in the promotion of family in a culture that is increasingly hostile.
