Success on Catholic Matchmaker New Zealand

Wellington, New Zealand, January 17, 2008 --( Catholic Matchmaker New Zealand has its first success story. “Cathie and David” have announced their engagement in the Christchurch Press last month, and plan an April Wedding.

Catholic Matchmaker opened its doors in New Zealand on 29 September 07 and since then has been a steadily growing website for Catholic singles to meet for friendships and relationships leading to marriage.

"What made it different to other “dating sites” was that it had the endorsement and blessing of Archbishop John Dew for promotion in the Wellington diocese – and since then all the other Catholic Bishops in New Zealand have also given permission to promote in their dioceses. CMM NZ has managed to avoid the usual pitfalls of “Dating Sites” by making it a private site, allowing only paid members to communicate with and search for members." says Clare Omvig, Administrator Catholic Matchmaker NZ.

Glen and Clare Omvig started the site, as they were an early Catholic Internet Romance success story. Now married 8 years and with 3 children, they are supporting others through the process of meeting their spouses online.

Glen Omvig shared “The most important factor in meeting online is for transparency and honesty in relating to everyone you meet. If you have decided that a certain person is not for you, having the courage to let them know is important – not only for you to move on with integrity, but to release them to meet their true love. Employing that one principle can make great friends into the future, and a strong community for others to join. Your friends are happy to then introduce you to others without reserve. Bringing God into the relationship and searching for His will is a sure way to find the match intended for your future.”

Catholic Matchmaker NZs website can be found at and is open to membership worldwide.
