Celebrate Love Booklets

The Celebrate Love Series consists of a broad array of booklets and corresponding evenings for parish couples that delve into the topics and key teaching points of the Living in Love weekend. Created by Fr Chuck Gallagher in 1992, these materials constitute a resource for any individual, couple, or group of couples who are interested in reflecting in more detail on these key concepts or sharing their reflection and experience with others. The Parish Evenings can be used as enrichment for parish couples whether or not they have experienced the Living in Love weekend.
