The following is a list of upcoming events and news briefs from around the Anchorage Archdiocese.
International mother’s marriage movement lands in Anchorage
CanaVox is an international marriage movement founded and led by mothers. The organization, which includes nearly 200 local chapters around the world has launched a local group in Anchorage with the aim of studying and discussing the importance of marriage.
The group meets monthly and provides readings from natural law, practical wisdom and science to equip women to speak effectively and lovingly about the beauty of marriage. According to the website, canavox.com, the goal of the local chapters is to bring people together “face to face to engage in the art of conversation with others” as “we explore the various issues affecting the marriage culture in a calm, thoughtful setting, free from the hostilities often found in today’s public discourse. We are a forward-thinking and solutions-focused network of friends for marriage.”
CanaVox groups typically read a few short essays, personal stories, and view videos that are selected to spark interesting discussions.
