Covenant of Love


Looking for a way to spice up your marriage? Want to grow in intimacy with your spouse? If so, DATE NIGHT is for you!

DATE NIGHT, an element of Covenant of Love from the Alexander House, is a parish-based monthly gathering of couples to assist them in becoming the “true” domestic church. By providing practical tools to live out God’s plan for marriage, spouses create a vibrant and positive community of married couples, becoming visible witnesses to Christ’s love for His Bride, the Church.

Couples come together once a month for prayer, fellowship, formation, and most importantly, one-on-one time that helps provide the space and time to build the intimacy we’re all looking for in our marriages. This lay, couple-run ministry unveils the many beautiful aspects of the Church’s wisdom regarding marriage, designed to help couples integrate these teachings into the whole of their marriage.

It’s important to note DATE NIGHT is not just for troubled marriages; it’s for every couple. We all need to be more intentional about putting the proper focus upon our spouse. When we put others and other things of life – jobs, entertainment, kids, etc. – ahead of God and the one we promised to give our entire being to, we’re going to experience problems.

This is why DATE NIGHT is so important: It allows ordinary couples to reconnect and refocus on what’s important, as well as imparts practical wisdom to become the husband and wife God desires them to be. DATE NIGHT provides spouses the opportunity to meet with like-minded couples and grow together in faith and intimacy.
