Diocesan centre for marriage, life and the family


Through training, accompaniment and its involvement in contemporary culture, the Diocesan Centre for Marriage, Life and the Family (DCMLF) of the Archdiocese of Montreal directs its evangelization efforts toward persons, couples and families who wish to discover God’s dream for human love and integrate it into their daily lives.

A bilingual service, the DCMLF draws on the rich heritage of the Office de la famille and the Family Life Office. It proposes a number of initiatives, marriage preparation being one of them, which seek to respond to the needs of today’s couples and families, to meet them in their lived reality, and to propose the happiness and abundant life that God wishes to give them.
