Bishop Richard J. Malone (Buffalo, chairman of USCCB Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth) sent a letter to all U.S. bishops, saying that National Marriage Week (Feb. 7-14), World Marriage Sunday (Feb. 9), and Valentine’s Day (Feb. 14) “provide an opportunity to celebrate the gift and blessing of marriage and to affirm and support engaged and married couples.” In his letter, Bishop Malone recommends resources for dioceses and parishes to “continue to build a culture that honors and promotes marriage and the family.” Read Bishop Malone’s letter here.

This goal of National Marriage Week, now in its fifth year,  is to promote the benefits of marriage for men, women, children and society, and to connect people with marriage resources around the country. For more information:
