Love Dare Marriage Enrichment

Fridays, beginning September 29th | 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Unconditional love is eagerly promised at weddings but rarely practiced in real life. As a result, romantic hopes are often replaced with disappointment in the home, but it doesn’t have to stay that way.

The Love Dare, the New York Times No. 1 best-seller, was a major plot in the popular movie, Fireproof, and it gives weekly challenges for husbands and wives to understand and practice unconditional love.

Whether your marriage is hanging on by a thread or healthy and strong, The Love Dare is a journey worth taking. It is time to learn the keys to finding true intimacy and developing a dynamic marriage.

September 29 – Marriage Movie Night at the Church – Watch Fire Proof – Mother Teressa 6:30-8pm
October 13 – Oboy Home in Medina

Congratulations to all our brides and grooms of 1974! 50 years of marriage is a milestone to be celebrated!

On Sunday, June 9th, 2024 at 2pm, Bishop Malesic will be celebrating a jubilee anniversary mass for couples married in 1974 at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in downtown Cleveland.

Everyone is invited and may bring their family with them. Doors open at 1:30pm. This is not a ticketed event, and no registration is needed. A picture opportunity with the Bishop will take place on the Superior Avenue side of the Cathedral following Mass. (No professional photographer will be available, please bring a camera to take a photo-staff will be available to assist.)

The Office of Marriage and Family Ministry is also offering a letter from Bishop Malesic and a certificate for all couples married 50 years. Attendance at the 50th Wedding Anniversary Mass is not required. The certificates and letters are compiled once a month and must be requested in advance. Please visit the Diocese of Cleveland, Marriage and Family Ministry website to request a certificate and letter. Contact Erin Marie Raines at 216-696-6525, ext. 7670, if you have any questions.

Kim Nemet, Marriage Enrichment | 330-460-7316

Our Marriage Enrichment program gives you and your spouse opportunities to grow and nourish your marriage through humor, speakers and a variety of topics; all to enhance your marriage. Does your marriage feel stale at times? Do you feel as if your relationship is withered and although things are okay, you both have the “Blahs?” The six week series can provide an excellent opportunity for enhancing communication, developing trust, cultivating physical intimacy, dealing with anger, nurturing spirituality, and adjusting to the inevitable bumps that happen in every marriage.

Kim Nemet, Couple to Couple Coordinator | 330-460-7316

Couple to Couple Ministers share their journey with some of the couples preparing for Marriage and their Weddings at Saint Ambrose.  We are so blessed by their ‘yes’ and choosing to share their gift of married love. As we grow in the number of weddings, we could use a few more married couples to help prepare engaged couples.  No couple is perfect… more importantly, each couple works to perfect love over the course of their life and marriage.  If you are interested and/or open to learning more, please contact Kim!

Couple-to-Couple Training

No marriage is perfect. No couple is perfect. However…your faithfulness and experience can be a great blessing to couples preparing for Marriage. We are looking for six additional couples to join our Couple to Couple Ministry. You meet with a couple to be married and share some life experiences and wisdom with them as they prepare for their life together. It’s enriching for the couple to be married and a great way of keeping your marriage ever fresh and new.

Interested? Willing to learn about it? Contact Kim Nemet at All the training will be provided.
