Diocese of Cheyenne Menu

Strengthening the bond of marriage and family life has been a priority in the diocese for years. It is our goal to provide programs and resources that will assist couples and families to successfully build loving relationships. Marriage preparation, education, and enrichment programs all play a role in bringing wholeness and holiness to the life of a couple and family. We are dedicated to helping married couples live out their vows. This process begins as we help educate youth and young adults about the sanctity of marriage. It continues as we specifically spend time with newly engaged couples in an extensive marriage preparation plan in which all facets of married life are examined in detail including Natural Family Planning. Marriage enrichment resources are also available as couples and families go through the years. Furthermore, there are resources available for couples who find themselves in difficult relationships. It is our desire for couples to utilize these resources to attempt to bring healing to their relationships. However, if a marriage ends in divorce, we want individuals to be truly aware and understand the teachings of the Church in regard to continued participation in the sacraments. The Church is still here for you. If you choose to pursue an annulment, we want you to have a clear understanding of what an annulment is and what it is not. There are people on staff in our tribunal office that will gladly answer your questions in this regard and describe the process in detail to you. If you need more information, contact Maria Ward mward@dioceseofcheyenne.org
