Imagine winning a contest that allowed you to build your "ultimate dream home" from the ground up... at no cost. Everything you'd ever dreamed of could be in this home. How exciting! You would plan the layout. You'd want a strong foundation, sturdy walls and a seamless roof. You would be so excited to invite friends and family to see it in all stages of work, but especially when it was done. You would gladly invest the time in the project, because the rewards would be so great, and you certainly wouldn't want to let an opportunity like this pass you by.

Luckily for us, the odds are much better in this contest, because all of us who are married have won! Contrary to what our culture wants us to believe, a joyful marriage is not a privilege of some, or the luck of a few. It is available to all of us, if we just invest a little bit of time and energy into making (and keeping) it strong. 

The Joyful Marriage Project was created to fulfill Archbishop Naumann's vision to invite every couple in Northeast Kansas to increase the joy in their marriage by attending a marriage enrichment in 2017.  Using the home-building analogy, we have grouped many different opportunities into four levels: Foundation, Structure, Storm-proofing and Open House. Couples are invited to participate at whichever level or levels they feel most comfortable.

The Holy Father's Prayer Intentions for May 2017:

Christians in Africa.


That Christians in Africa, in imitation of the Merciful Jesus, may give prophetic witness to reconciliation, justice, and peace.

Archbishop Naumann's Prayer Intentions for May 2017:

  1. Please pray for Deacon Michael Guastello and Deacon Daniel Coronado, who will be ordained priests for our Archdiocese on Saturday, May 27.  Pray that they will be dedicated, zealous and joyful priests.  Pray for an abundance of priestly vocations for our Archdiocese.
  2. Please pray renewed devotion for Mary as we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the apparitions at Fatima.  May more individuals and families pray the rosary.

Archbishop Nauman has announced his pastoral vision for the next 10 years.  Please read the document and join with the Archbishop in implementing this mutually shared vision.  This document, with the theme “Complete Joy: Growing as Disciples of Jesus, Making Disciples for Jesus" is the culmination of the work that he and his Visioning Team accomplished over the past year: Click here to read the Shared Vision.
