Welcome to It Is Well Living Church - Church of St. Paul the Apostle located in the heart of New York. Here at our church, we believe in the sacredness and importance of marriage. We understand that marriage is a lifelong commitment and a beautiful bond between two individuals. Our faith community is dedicated to providing support, guidance, and resources to couples seeking to strengthen their marital journey.

The Importance of Marriage

Marriage is more than just a legal contract; it is a spiritual union that reflects the love and commitment between Christ and His Church. In the New Testament, the Apostle Paul emphasized the significance of marriage, describing it as a profound mystery that mirrors the relationship between Christ and His followers. As a community rooted in faith and beliefs, we celebrate the divine institution of marriage and encourage couples to build a strong foundation based on love, respect, and shared values.

Marriage Preparation

At It Is Well Living Church, we believe that proper preparation is essential for a successful and fulfilling marriage. Our marriage preparation program offers comprehensive guidance and support for engaged couples. Through pre-marital counseling, educational workshops, and spiritual guidance, we aim to equip couples with the necessary tools and knowledge to navigate the challenges and joys of married life. Our experienced clergy and dedicated team are committed to helping you strengthen your relationship and prepare for a lifelong commitment.

Pre-Marital Counseling

Our pre-marital counseling sessions provide a safe and supportive space for couples to explore various aspects of their relationship. With a focus on effective communication, conflict resolution, and establishing shared goals, our experienced counselors facilitate open and honest conversations that help couples navigate potential challenges and deepen their connection. Through this counseling process, couples gain a deeper understanding of themselves and each other, setting a solid foundation for a successful marriage.

Workshops and Retreats

In addition to counseling, we offer workshops and retreats designed to enhance the emotional, spiritual, and practical aspects of married life. These interactive sessions cover topics such as intimacy, financial management, spiritual growth, and maintaining a healthy work-life balance. Led by professionals and experienced couples, these events provide valuable insights, practical tips, and tools that contribute to a thriving marital relationship.

Marriage Enrichment

Our commitment to supporting marriages extends beyond the wedding day. We offer a variety of resources and opportunities for couples to continually enrich their relationships and deepen their connection.

Support Groups

We believe that community support plays a crucial role in sustaining and strengthening marriages. We offer support groups where couples can connect with others who share similar values and experiences. These groups provide a space for couples to share their joys, seek guidance, and find encouragement from their peers. Through the power of shared stories and collective wisdom, these support groups foster a sense of belonging and provide ongoing support throughout the marital journey.

Marriage Retreats

Our marriage retreats provide couples with a valuable opportunity to step away from their everyday routines and invest in their relationship. These retreats offer a mix of educational sessions, spiritual guidance, and quality time for couples to reconnect and rekindle their love.
