Marriage Preparation

Married couples from our parish work with engaged couples.  The ministering couple’s primary function is to administer the F.O.C.C.U.S. (Facilitating Open Couple Communication, Understanding and Study) instrument and facilitate engaged couples’ communication through a guided format.  The intent is to enhance engaged couples’ communication skills, encourage relationship and increase awareness of areas of married life that may have been overlooked.  The goal is to prepare couples for the fullness of matrimonial relationship.
