Amore Project

Photo Amore Project
The Amore Project helps the whole Church by rediscovering the family as the domestic church, by strengthening marriages and those in the single life to recognize God’s spousal love for every person, and by forming spiritual families to live as agents of Jesus’ self-giving love in their neighborhoods and communities.  The mission of the Amore Project is to develop the family, the domestic church, through the bonds of marriage, for the purpose of evangelism and ecumenism.
