Passion of Hope, a Ministry to Singles

Marriage isn’t for everyone, right? Or is it? Julieanne Bartlett, based on scripture and Church teachings thinks it is for everyone! Her ministry, Passion of Hope speaks to the heart of people who long for a spouse. Their world and culture may look and think they have it all – education, career, good income, fun – but the deepest desire of their heart, someone to build a life within marriage is missing.

As someone who married late in life, Julie shares her struggle to wait with hope. She believes that God uses marriage to reflect his presence in the world. Marriage mirrors Christ’s relationship with the Church and is our path to sanctification.

Passion of Hope ministry aims to give hope to singles who want to be married. This is often in direct contrast to the world which does not value monogamy, sees marriage as unnecessary and difficult to sustain.

In October, Julie will present a talk, God wants you to be Married, at the Standing in the Word Retreat. This event put together by Sonja Corbitt will be held on October 23-25, 2020 at the Shrine of the Blessed Sacrament n Hanceville, AL.
