A New Year’s Thought 2021

This is taken from “What the Wind Knows” by Amy Harmon

“I can’t imagine all men love their women the way I love (mine). If they did, the streets would be empty, and the fields would grow fallow. Industry would rumble to a halt and markets would tumble as men bowed at the feet of their wives, unable to need or notice anything but her. If all men loved their wives the way I love mine, we would be a useless lot. Or maybe the world would know peace. Maybe the wars would end, and the strife would cease as we centered our lives on loving and being loved.”

Archbishop Naumann – Episcopal Moderator



Archbishop Joseph Naumann of the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas has embraced the Living in Love Programs and agreed to be the Episcopal Moderator for the Pastoral and Matrimonial Renewal Center. We are incredibly grateful to Archbishop Naumann for his belief in the work we are doing and willingness to provide his wisdom and insight to help guide us in our best efforts to serve the Church.

Archbishop Naumann is very familiar with the Living in Love Program Suite from its widespread implementation in his own Diocese. He has called it “One of the greatest phenomena he has ever witnessed.”

This formalizes a much needed relationship between the PMRC and the official Church. We look forward to working together to be a force for good as the Church continues to proclaim the good news of the integration of sexuality and spirituality.

Living in Love Impact Award 2015

During the 26 September Living in Love Leader’s Gathering held outside Philadelphia, Ron and Kathy Feher presented the Living in Love Impact Award for 2015 to Dick and Stephanie Giba of Ann Arbor, MI. The wording of the award is as follows:

“For relentless courage, noble ambition, and tireless generosity empowering couples to live in love as authentic witnesses to the Theology of the Body”

Dick and Stephanie began the entire Living in Love program suite in Michigan on faith. They recruited the first Living in Love weekend West of the Allegheny Mountains single handedly without having experienced one themselves and immediately ran the Living in Love Every Day follow up course. The next year, they recruited 55 more couples for the second weekend and have given multiple weekends a year for the past 8 years in and around their parish. They have trained hundreds of mentors and presented more Living in Love retreats than any couple other than the Fehers.

Not content to stay at Chris the King in Ann Arbor, they spread Living in Love to neighboring parishes, the neighboring diocese of Detroit, and all the way up into the thumb and the Diocese of Saginaw. When appointed to the Diocesan Marriage Task Force, their presentation of the Living in Love suite won approval and gained access to parishes in the Lansing area. Dick and Stephanie have even reached across significant cultural barriers to the Chaldean Catholic Community and young Iraqi immigrants.

In spite multiple advanced degrees, Dick and Stephanie are disarmingly humble. They are irresistibly sincere, powerfully faith-filled, wise and generous. They epitomize the call of couples to be Sacrament in the Church. We praise and thank God for them today.
