Journey with Us

Calling all Catholic fathers!

Chris and Matt invite you to join them along the epic journey of being a father while chasing after the Father.

What does it look like to live out the faith and lead the family amidst the spiritual battleground surrounding us?

... and all Catholic mothers!

Join Jennifer as we find holy moments in the midst of the chaos. Or, what we like to call, Catholic motherhood.

You won’t find perfect children, a completely clean house, or other unattainable standards here. But we do guarantee you will be uplifted, supported, and find community.

Marriage on Mission

An Ablaze Families Marriage Enrichment Retreat

The grace that comes from marriage is meant to make us holy, make our kids holy, and transform the world around us. Marriage on Mission sets the stage for couples to re-orient their marriage towards Christ, and live out the mission to which they are called.

Take this online enrichment retreat at your own pace! Choose to take your time and watch it over the course of a week, or knock it out in a weekend.

Take time to pour into the life of your marriage, and be ready for what the Lord wants to do in and through your vocation.
