About us

John and Michelle DavidIMG_5503

In our 21 years of marriage we have learned that the Sacrament of Marriage is truly a gift designed and created for us by God. We have also learned that marriage isn’t easy and we need to continually encourage and support each other through the graces we receive.  As long time members of Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, we have been abundantly blessed to work in marriage ministry over the last 16 years. Marriage isn’t something we can check off our list of things to do.  It’s a process, a journey and we’re always growing.  We were humbled by the amazing turnout to  celebrate marriage at our first Cherish evening and greatly look forward to seeing everyone again on Saturday, February 10th, 2018 at The Fredrik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park.

Hello, we are Steve and Pam Strobel, and we are grateful to God for the gift of a Catholic marriage.  As we celebrate our 29th anniversary this fall, we firmly believe that strengthening marriages is central to our mission and vocation as a married couple.  Although we have worked in a variety of ministries over the years, as a couple, we have enjoyed serving children and families for the past 21 years as the Directors of Vacation Bible School at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Grand Rapids, in addition to serving as Eucharistic Ministers to the homebound.
