Welcome to the Center for Marriage, Family, and Life

Center for Marriage, Family & Life

In July 2012 the Catholic Diocese of Richmond launched this initiative to provide support for both clergy and the lay faithful through a “center” approach rather than a diocesan office. The hope of the Bishop is that this structure becomes more than an office – it becomes a “center for excellence” in Marriage, Family, and Life for our Diocese.

Through a “center” approach the combined wisdom of various subject matter experts will be coupled with infrastructure relationships and processes that already exist within the Diocesan Pastoral Center structure.
