Marriage Preparation

Adult Formation and Spiritual Life

This ministry is used to provide engaged couples with the best possible foundation for a Christian marriage through meetings with a sponsor couple.  Sponsor couples are couples who have been married for at least five years and wish to share the experience of their marriage bond with engaged couples.  Passing on knowledge of the sacrament of marriage to those who are seeking marriage can be a very enriching and rewarding experience.  Expectations of sponsor couples include:

  • Attending Diocesan semi-annual training meeting
  • Attending parish sponsor couple group semi-annual meeting with coordinators
  • Facilitating three two-hour meetings with an engaged couple in your home; usually with 4-6 couples per year
