Explore is a charity bringing volunteer married couples into schools and parishes to allow 14 – 17 year olds to explore what marriage is all about, to learn in a dynamic way the importance of lasting relationships and to inspire them to aspire to lifelong marriage.

The emotional and financial cost of family breakdown is incalculable but Explore works to change this. Volunteer couples find their own marriages enriched through this urgent apostolate.

Please consider volunteering (only twice or three times a year) visit www.theexploreexperience.co.uk, talk it over with your spouse and for further info, contact Edmund Adamus at the Office for Marriage and Family Life:  This email address is being protected from spambots.
