Office of Marriage and Family
Understanding that the family is the domestic church and reveals to the world a unique vision of God's love and life, the Marriage and Family Office of the Diocese of Salt Lake City is dedicated to empowering families in all its stages from conception to natural death. The Marriage and Family Life Office will perform these duties by developing and implementing programs as well as researching and implementing existing programs that enhance family life. The Marriage and Family Life office will work towards these goals through active participation in local, national and international groups that support and protect family life in accordance with Catholic teaching.

Walking With Moms In Need
WHAT IS WALKING WITH MOMS IN NEED?
Walking with Moms in Need is a year of service, supported by the USCCB, where Catholic parishes and communities "walk in the shoes" of local pregnant and parenting women in need. Everyone should know how to help moms in difficult circumstances. While not trying to turn Catholic parishes into pregnancy centers, we can support local pregnancy centers where they exist, and we can also find and share other resources with pregnant and parenting women. And where there are few local resources, we can create our own, based on the gifts of the parish community!
We hope you and your parish will join us in this Year of Service. For more information on what you and your parish can do go to: https://www.walkingwithmoms.com/parish-resources
