Open to all couples who have a desire to serve other couples. All Couples called to serve must be in good standing open to serve a parish in the capacity of marriage preparation & formation. There will be 2 training days offered, these training days together would be sufficient as the pre-requisite marriage prep required by the diocese, along with Natural Family Planning.
June 18th we will focus on our Couple Prayer series helping our couples learn how important prayer is in their marriage especially when they pray together.
They will both be blessed through the intimacy and grace of sharing that love-relationship with one another in new and more trusting ways, and that through their faith, shared in Couple Prayer, generations will reap what they sow.
July 6th we will dive into our series "Joy-Filled Marriage". The training will focus on the Catholic Church’s Teaching on sex and marriage. Helping one another embrace the truth in love not as a list of “prohibitions”; overcoming the “I’m coping with it –but not happy” attitude.” Embracing and even celebrating God’s glorious plan for their lives in the Sacrament of Marriage and seeing it through new lenses, therefore being able to “guide” others into the fullness of their vocation.
Objectives: We will instill the confidence for Sponsor/Mentor Couples to grow and mature within their own union, therefore finding peace in "teaching" "forming" couples they are called to sponsor.
Training on How To have "one on one’s" with couples and the How To’s of facilitating a couple strengthening "group series" at the parish level.
Please send forth couple names by WEDS. July 6th, so that we can prepare materials as needed. You may email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at (806) 383-2243 X 129.
