Together

Church of the Ascension and St. Michael the Archangel Parish have teamed up to co-host Together, a ministry devoted to married couples.  Our hope is to provide opportunities for marriages to grow deeper and for our faith communities to grow broader. Through collaborative learning, inter-parish fellowship, and shared faith experiences, you will grow Together with your spouse and be encouraged in your vocation.

Spend your Saturday night Together. Join us for dynamic speaker presentations, fellowship, prayer, drinks, and appetizers.  Then, continue the conversation with your spouse, out on a date or back in your home — at at time and place that works for both of you! We will provide simple reflection questions to take with you, as entry points for deeper discussion and personal application.

The topics for each evening will be “served a la carte,” meaning, you do not need to prepare with reading or homework ahead of time, nor do you need attended every available evening (although you are certainly encouraged to do so)! All married couples are invited to come — so bring a friend from your neighborhood or from a neighboring parish. You can expect a comfortable, inviting, and pressure-free atmosphere.

Limited childcare is available for children walking through age 1-10. We recommend you register early if you need childcare; our facilities are limited and are expected to fill quickly!

The cost to register for an evening Together is $15/couple (not per person!), and can easily be completed via the links below. Childcare is $3/child. Scholarships are always available upon request!
