St. Michael parish in St. Michael is inviting engaged couples from other parishes in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis to attend a “God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage” retreat on Saturday, Jan. 14, at the St. Albert Parish Center, 11400 57th St. N.E., Albertville.

The retreat, based on Christopher West’s Theology of the Body retreats, provides a rich understanding of the teachings of the church and offers tools to live married life as God intended, according to the flyer promoting the event.

St. Michael, which is in its fifth year of offering the retreats to engaged couples in the parish, would like to have other parishes learn about and host a similar retreat, said St. Michael parishioner Michelle Steele.

Steele said retreat presenters talk to couples about chastity before the wedding, natural family planning, the difference between lust and love, and the importance of praying as a couple and growing in their faith together. At the end of the retreat, she added, many of the couples have a new perspective of marriage.
