On April 2, 2009, the Presbyteral Council of the Diocese of San Angelo recommended, and Bishop Michael D. Pfeifer adopted, a document prepared by the 2011 Committee called "Family Life and Marriage: The Priority for Ministry."  The document recognizes and includes the divorced within the broad definition of family.  The bishop also asked the presbyteral council to begin implementation of this ministry, therefore the council passed a motion recommending and funding the Office of Family Life And Marriage in the diocese.  As of this writing (12/2009) there are no further details on the diocese website.  Please contact the diocese for more information.
