Shrine hosts couples event


MARIA STEIN – On Friday, Feb. 14, the Maria Stein Shrine of the Holy Relics will be hosting “God, Teach Us to Love.” This special St. Valentine’s Day event will include a dinner & presentation by Fr. Alexander Witt, Parochial Vicar of the Coldwater Cluster Parishes.

The Trinity is a relationship of three persons, and so is a marriage – wife, husband, and God. By modeling marriage on the perfect love of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, it can strengthen the bond, helping spouses grow in love of each other and of their God. Join us as we learn how God, by very nature, teaches us how to love! From newly engaged couples to those who have been together for decades, this special evening is perfect for all couples who wish to strengthen their marriage through God’s love.

The event is $30 per couple and reservations are required. Attendees will enjoy delicious dinner in the romantic ambiance of the Shrine’s Upper Room.
