Wojtyła Community & Institute

A Family of Families

Trusting The Rule of St. John Paul II, we are a family of families, striving for holiness, strengthening marriages, and living the truth of Humanae Vitae with JOY!

Wojtyła Community & Institute, Inc. (WCI) is an intentional, committed, Catholic community following The Rule for Married Couple Groups (MCG) written by St. John Paul II (when he was Cardinal Karol Wojtyła).  WCI has a Marriage Charism with the MCGs at its core, and is committed to upholding the Culture of the Person as explained by Wojtyła and helping couples deepen their Conjugal Spirituality.  The WCI follows the 6-point Rule to give support to married couples and their families, which includes ongoing education in marriage and family which the Institute will provide.  The WCI operates in full adherence to the teachings of the Catholic Church, especially Humanae Vitae and the teachings of St. John Paul II.

The founding of the Wojtyła Community & Institute (WCI) is a direct answer to the call of St. John Paul II (then Bishop Wojtyła). In documents only recently rediscovered, St. John Paul II notes that in a culture that is increasingly anti-Christian, to live an authentically Christian marriage “requires a moral perfection and a commitment to acquire it and keep it much greater than ever before.” He says it “requires a certain heroism.” Yet, how is it possible for a Catholic marriage to maintain love at the level of heroic virtue? The answer, St. John Paul II states, is community.

When there is no community that upholds the culture of the person, the dignity of the person, and conjugal spirituality of the married couple, then St. John Paul II says, it must be created. Cardinal Wojtyła had launched this initiative of Married Couple Groups, which occurred directly after the promulgation of Humanae Vitae. The WCI will follow his 6-point Rule in establishing Married Couple Groups, which will be the heartbeat of the Community.

To live authentically Christian marriages, we need the support of an intentional, committed, Catholic community.
