About Renew the 'I do'

A very special Renewal of Vows Mass at St. Mary’s of the Assumption church in Glenshaw, PA was the spark that started this foundation. The amazing feedback we received from all of the couples who reaffirmed their wedding vows that evening, inspired us to build and support a community of fun, loving Pittsburgh married couples. We learned through our research that the two most important ways that couples can make their marriage thrive, is by praying together and consistently and intentionally going on date nights.
 
Renew the ‘I do’ offers unique and inspirational Pittsburgh date nights, quality marriage preparation, an annual renewal of vows Mass in addition to modernfertilitycare.org.  We also gather and share the most important research, articles and resources from partner institutes studying marriage and family.

We are always striving for effective ways to inspire couples through each season of marriage. Please join us!
