How do I help a couple who used In vitro fertilization?

A well-meaning couple had severe marital problems caused by infertility. Not wanting to adopt a baby, they have resorted to IF, even though they were aware about the sinful matter in going through with it. Following IF, they are parenting twins who are now 4 years old, and somehow have found solace by “joining” the Baptist Church. Communicating with the husband is almost impossible about this subject. How does one offer total help for the couple with hope of having them return to their Catholic roots ? :shrug:
