Teams of Our Lady is an International Catholic movement to enrich marriage spirituality. The aim of the movement is to help couples live out a married spirituality and to discover the full richness of the sacrament of marriage. Each team is made up of five to seven couples and a Spiritual Director. We meet monthly in each other’s homes. Team members strive to live out endeavours which assist in their spiritual formation as a couple and as individuals. The endeavours include daily personal, couple and family prayer, regular reading and reflection on the Bible, having a monthly sit down as a couple to discuss spiritual and family matters, following a personal “rule of life”, and attending an annual retreat as a team.
