The Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is sponsoring a “Married Couples Retreat” on March 21–22 at the Magnuson Hotel, Tyler, Texas.  Lloyd and Jan Tate are the presenting couple.

The Tates have served the Catholic Church as a couple in numerous ministries over the years with a particular emphasis on engaged preparation and marriage enrichment.  They have prepared engaged couples for marriage for over 38 years and in 2002 they authored their own “In Home Marriage Preparation” Manual which is now used in dioceses around the country, including the Diocese of Tyler.

The Diocese of Tyler’s Office of Marriage & Family Life has announced its schedule of marriage preparation days and weekends for 2015.

These sessions, held in both English and Spanish, are designed to give couples preparing for marriage the tools that will help them live out a faithful, permanent and fruitful commitment.
