Twice a year, The Criterion produces Marriage Supplements celebrating recent and upcoming Catholic marriages while also sharing the works of the archdiocese’s Office of Marriage and Family Life. This current supplement features 43 couples who submitted their wedding announcement to The Criterion. It also features an article on two marriage enrichment opportunities and an article on two marriage apostolates. The supplement also provides a schedule of upcoming marriage preparation programs and information on how to submit marriage announcements for our next Marriage Supplement in August 2024.
