    Agenda for Monthly Meeting

    Agape is Greek for love and fellowship

     

    *30 minutes of hospitality, lite dessert and coffee, friendly sharing, and companionship.

     

    *Begin in prayer with the leading couple.

     

    * 30 minutes of bible study.  

    The priest will choose a Biblical passage on which to

    meditate and to be applied to daily life.

     

    *30 minutes of sharing; every couple shares how they fulfilled monthly activities,

    marriage dialogue, family prayers, and family meals.

    Also, share their experiences of goodness and of problems in their married life.

    Sharing doesn’t mean exposing the sinful moments of the

    private marriage life.

     

    *15 minutes for Priest or Deacon to present Catholic Teaching about marriage and family.

    In the absence of the Priest or Deacon; a reading of the

    Catholic teaching concerning these issues.

     

    * Last 15 minutes: questions, concerns, set up next meeting,

    final prayer with 1 decade of the Rosary led by leading couple.
