Family Life Ministry

SJV Summer Campout: Save the date for the SJV Family Life Ministry Summer Campout that will be held from the evening of July 28th through noon of July 30th. Signups will begin in the early spring. If you want to sign up early you can reach out to Margaret Garber-Teeter email or call (925) 998-6046.

Mentor Couple Program: The Family Life Ministry is actively launching a Mentor Couple Program. The program will provide new couples an opportunity to engage with more experienced couples. Each mentor couple will be asked to help the new couple integrate into the community, provide introductions to ministries, and they may also assist with questions that come up around church or family life (guidelines will be provided). The time commitment will vary, but we ask that you plan at least 10-15 hours in a one year period.

Engaged couples will be the first target group that will get mentors, but we hope to expand the program to newly married couples, and possibly to new families, once the initial program is up and running smoothly.

We are looking for couples who have been together for at least 5 years, who are well established in their relationship, and who are active members of the parish. Information and training will be provided. If you are interested, please contact Jerry Mellin  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call (925) 787-8865.

Relationship/Marriage Enrichment Series: A relationship enrichment series is under development. Any couple of any age is encouraged to attend. Singles who plan to be in a relationship in the future are also welcome. More information will be available and a date will be announced soon. 

Senior Social: A Senior Social is in the works! Come hang out and meet some new people. The date will be announced soon.
