Over the first two weekends in May, the members of the Orthodox Couples Club (OCC) met in small groups for fellowship and a marriage enrichment program. Thank you to our host couples for their hospitality and opening up their homes.
Fr. Panagiotis led a session on the division of labor and household tasks within our marriages, based on this Atlantic article and other similar material. We discussed how the way that we divide and execute tasks within our marriage is a way that we can show our love and support for our spouses. Communication, sacrifice, gratitude, and fulfillment were all emphasized as necessary for us to manage both the realities of our shared world, and the complex dynamics of our marriages.
We thank all the OCC participants for the enthusiasm for all of this past year’s ministry events and activities.
