Engaged couples meet with a priest or a deacon to discuss the marriage covenant. Additional steps include participating in The Joy Filled Marriage program and completing a FOCCUS or Prepare & Enrich pre-marriage survey. The engaged couple may also choose “Together Forever” program where facilitating couples work with them to identify personal traits that could affect the marriage relationship. Discussions also include the sacramental nature of marriage and its importance as a life-long covenant.
