Ascension's Couples In Christ Ministry

Couples in Christ launched in 2016 with the intention to flourish the love and well-being between couples new to marriage or those who have been married up to 10 years. This ministry comes together periodically to discuss practical topics to nourish the healthy development and maintenance of Christ centered relationships and family life. Visiting presenters, real world topics and fellowship activities enrich this thriving program. For questions about this ministry, please contact Bill & Iliana Gaston at


Prayer for Married Persons 

O Lord Jesus Christ, thank You for blessing our marriage through the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony. 
When we stood together before Your Holy Altar, we invited You to come and bless us.
We claim Your Holy Presence in our marriage this day and every day.
You are the Source of Love.
Keep pouring Your love into us through the Holy Spirit.
Help us to stay close to You.
Help us to prefer one another in love,
To consider it a privilege to be able to serve one another
‘Till we see You face to face.
Help us to be kind to each other, tenderhearted,
Forgiving one another as You have forgiven us.
Never let the sun go down on our anger.
Grant us always to see our own faults
And not to judge each other.
Open our eyes to the best in each other.
Let patience reign supreme in our hearts.
Give us hope to brighten life,
And joy to lighten sorrow.

May our home be a haven where spiritual
Values are treasured and
Holy principles are modeled.
Gladden us with Your grace and peace
That with one heart we may
Praise and glorify You.
