Speaker : Jonar Lusung ( from Couples for Christ )
In revisiting God’s plan for marriage, we come to a clearer understanding of how we are to respond to his Invitation to become an integral part of building a Christian Home. This can only be possible through the help of the Holy Spirit.
Speaker : Corey & Julie Ang ( Couple Empowerment programme )
Song of Songs 2:14-15 exults , “Arise, my love, my beautiful one, and come away.” True sexual intimacy has the power to heal, renew and sustain a couple through the different seasons of their marriage relationship. Marital sex involves a lifetime discovery of our spouse. Come and discover the 6 attributes of being a great lover and the joys of marital love.
Speaker : Dr Douglas Ong (NFP)
How does NFP fit into our lives in the context of modern day contraceptives ? Does it work ? Why should I consider it at all ? Come and listen to why NFP is our call to a Catholic way of life and how it has become even more relevant in the 21st century. Feel free to share and question in this conversation with a Catholic Gynae and our NFP community. Open to couples of all ages. It’s not just about mucus. It’s about living out Faith
Speaker : Fr Luke Fong ( Marriage Encounter )
Many of us struggle when it comes to handling the pains that necessarily come with life. A Christian’s share of suffering and affliction is no less than one who is not a follower of Christ. However a Christian does have an advantage over others when facing such trials because of Jesus Christ. If you have not understood why, you probably have not understood Christianity.
Speaker : Fr Johnson Fernandez ( Marriage Retorno )
Learn how to pray as a couple and strengthen the intimate union with Christ in His Word.
