Events

The Marriage, Inc., Web site is available to serve as a “bulletin board” for community- and church-sponsored events designed to strengthen marriage. We will post classes, seminars and workshops that are being held in the Kankakee County area, provided they are consistent with the mission of Marriage, Inc. We will also be happy to refer couples to take advantage of available seminars and other pro-marriage events.
