What is Teams of Our Lady?
Teams of Our Lady is an international Christian lay movement that works to enrich married spirituality for couples who seek to live their marriages sacramentally. Teams provide new opportunities to increase and improve prayer life, helping couples support each other and grow closer to God and to each other.
Ideally a team is comprised of four to six couples whose marriage is recognized in the eyes of the Catholic Church. The team meets once a month, rotating from one home to another. If a couple’s home cannot accommodate the entire team, the group can meet in a church meeting room or outside, if possible. Some teams might have a Chaplain or Spiritual Counsellor as part of their team. The Chaplain/Spiritual Counsellor comes to the meeting to share equally and contribute uniquely to walk with the Team in their Christian journey. The team shares a simple meal with some personal sharing of their previous month, prayer, sharing on the endeavours, and a discussion topic. The endeavours are the heart of the spirit of Teams. The team becomes a close community that can inspire one another through their living examples of faith, and share with one another their struggles and successes on their way to holiness.
