OUR STORY OF LOVE
Para español – Cuéntanos tu Cuento de Amor
With the “Our Story of Love” initiative, we invite married couples to share your stories to your children and loved ones. You can fill out the below online form with answers to our inspiring questions or use your own ideas to tell your stories. Once submitted, the form sends your stories via email to up to 5 recipients of your choosing.
This is a great way for families to discover stories they never knew about their parents. It’s also an opportunity for couples to reconnect with important people from their wedding with whom they may have lost touch. The hope is that married couples will share about your experiences of sacramental marriage as faithful witnesses, conveying the love of Christ to your children and loved ones.
There are 5 optional questions provided, but feel free to skip the ones you don’t want to answer by clicking ‘Next.’ You are also able to upload an image to go with your stories!
