Regular price Sale price $4.95 USD
Together for Life has been the most trusted source for wedding planning in the Catholic Church for more than forty-five years.

Written by Msgr. Joseph Champlin (1930-2008) and first published in 1970, more than nine-million copies of Together for Life have been sold. The fifth edition was updated in 2011 with the help of Rev. Peter A. Jarret, C.S.C., to include the revised liturgical texts of the third edition of the Roman Missal.

Each reading choice is accompanied by a reflection written by lay married theologians or pastoral leaders who are committed to the sacramental life of the church. Contributors include Ann M. Garrido, Msgr. Michael Heintz, Diana Macalintal, H. Richard McCord, Geoffrey D. Miller, Tim Muldoon, Julie Hanlon Rubio, and Deacon William F. Urbine.

The 2011 edition of Together for Life includes all of the information, prayers, blessings, and readings needed to plan a wedding that will be held during Mass, outside Mass, or between a Catholic and an unbaptized person. FAQs address questions couples may have about traditions such as readings, music, witnesses, and unusual circumstances.

Engaged couples use Together for Life when meeting with a priest, deacon, or lay parish minister to plan their wedding as they prepare for living the Sacrament of Marriage.
