Registration for the second annual Together in Holiness conference in the Archdiocese of Detroit is now open! Catholic married and engaged couples are invited to join us on Saturday, October 14, 2023 from 9:30am-4:30pm at St. Hugo of the Hills Parish in Bloomfield Hills for a day of quality time with your spouse, Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, Reconciliation, and more!”  Ken & Signe Castel join us today.

Ken Castel has been married to his wife Signe for over 45 years and have three adult children and 7 living grandchildren. Active in numerous ministries throughout their marriage, they first began praying together in 2007 when, as Signe puts it, “there was a disconnect” in their relationship. Almost immediately they both noticed a softer, gentler tone in their relationship.  Meaningful, intimate communication became much more common between them as they experienced God breathing new life into their marriage.  From that moment on they were hooked and sought after opportunities to share the great news of the blessings of a Christ Centered marriage that praying together leads to.
