Couples for Christ

This worldwide movement for family life is not established in the Diocese of Nelson at this time, but the benefits for enriched family life are being explored.  The Canadian part of the movement has a website: where additional information about goals of the organization and the branch organizations for kids, youth, singles, migrants, pro-life, the poor, etc. can be found.
