Couples Night Out
Our final "Couples Night Out" will be held on August 22.It is an opportunity for married couples to take a "night out" for yourselves, a times to grow in your relationship, a time to re-connect with each other in a way that your many obligations of life don't often allow.
Couples come to the 4:00 pm Mass at St. Mary, Portage and then, following Mass, gather at the rectory for "social time". After a short Happy Hour, followed by a brief discusion and reflection, couples will be invited to go out on a date. (Remember what that is?) We'll offer you some questions for you conversation based upon the presentation.
