The Catholic Society for Marriage Education following a 12 month period of consultation with membership and stakeholders, including the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference, is moving towards dissolution.

The Society commenced in 1973, was constituted in 1980 and we celebrate 43 years of ministry.

This sad but inevitable decision was made because of rapid societal changes, the impact of technology, easy access to resources and professional development which resulted in declining membership.

We thank the many volunteers who have promoted and supported marriage and family life in accordance with the beliefs and teachings of the Catholic Church by encouraging marriage and relationship education throughout Australia.
