A Marriage Event for Couples

APRIL 13, 2024 :: 9:00AM – 3:00PM

When we think of ‘faithfulness’ in marriage, we usually think of the things we shouldn’t do (e.g. have an affair). But what if true faithfulness really was a ‘fullness of faith’ – in one another and in God?

What if faithfulness meant a countercultural and robust way of loving and living? 

This spring, join Soren and Ever Johnson (co-founders of Trinity House Community) and hundreds of other couples from around the Arlington Diocese as we reimagine marriage as the very place where God makes faith grow.

Soren and Ever Johnson

Soren and Ever Johnson are proud parents of five children and parishioners at St. John the Apostle in Leesburg, VA. They founded the non-profit Trinity House Community and Trinity House Café+ Market to inspire families to make home a taste of heaven for the renewal of faith and culture. In 2022, Soren and Ever were invited to share the Trinity House ministry framework at the Vatican’s World Meeting of Families in Rome.

Soren formerly served as Director of Evangelization for the Diocese of Arlington, and Ever formerly served as Research Assistant to papal biographer George Weigel. They are featured writers for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ ForYourMarriage.org and have been published in Magnificat, Word Among Us, Our Sunday Visitor, Aleteia, National Catholic Register, Humanum, and the Arlington Catholic Herald. They both hold MAs in theology. Currently, Trinity House Community Groups are active in over 15 parishes in 5 states and Puerto Rico.
