Marriages Are Covenants (MAC) is an outreach ministry of St. Peter Chanel Adult Education and a program of The Integrated Catholic Life™. MAC is designed to help ordinary, everyday married couples to strengthen their marital bond and see their marriage come alive with the purpose and passion God intends. We will provide both Catholic teaching and practical "how-to" that is compelling and effective. MAC emphasizes the Sacrament of Matrimony as a sacred covenant between God and the husband and wife.
