Our Diocese

Diocese of Westminster Marriage and Family Life

Marriage and Family Life works at the service of marriage, family and the Gospel of Life. 

Attention is given to all aspects of married life: deepening the understanding of how marriage is different to other forms of relationship; marriage enrichment; parenting, and especially fatherhood; the effects of divorce and separation; the interests of children; and pre-marriage relationships.

In regard to the Gospel of Life, particular attention is given to abortion and euthanasia, as well as reproductive technologies, embryo experimentation, genetics, family planning and population issues.

In support of this work, Marriage and Family Life endeavours to extend the research, policy, educational and pastoral activities that the Archdiocese undertakes.

Marriage and Family Life is part of the Agency for Evangelisation under the leadership of Father Christopher Vipers, Director of the Agency for Evangelisation. Deacon Roger Carr-Jones is our Marriage and Family Coordinator.

We have a range of resources, initiatives and events that may be useful for teachers, pupils and their families.
