Introducing Joy of Love

Joy of Love is a framework for the preparation, formation and support of marriage and relationships. 

It is a strategic approach that encompasses the formation of people of different ages and stages of life in a Christian approach to relationships, marriage, family and sexual intimacy across the life-long continuum. 

It is based on the understanding that marriage is a lifelong commitment and relationship between a woman and a man, that requires preparation and ongoing support, beginning at Baptism and continuing for the years that follow the reception of the Marriage Sacrament.

Joy of Love includes extensive programs, courses and resources, for young children, teenagers, parents/carers, post-school, engaged and married couples in the Sydney Archdiocese. The first program to commence in 2022, is Healthy Friendship Week.
