  • The Third Option is an on-going skills based group program to build better marriages. 

    It is designed for all married couples and can be used both as marriage enrichment or crisis intervention. For hurting couples, who see only two options painful endurance or divorce, The Third Option means reconciliation. Couples may attend a single session or all sessions, even if the series has already started. The group meets in person in Carmel, IN or couples can join virtually on Zoom. This ministry is open to couples in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and the Diocese of Lafayette-in-Indiana. For more information, visit
