Sponsor Couple Sponsor Couples are parish members who have been married at least 5 years and are willing to share the lessons of their life journey. This parish ministry helps to prepare our engaged couples for the sacred and joyous sacrament of marriage.
Sponsor Couples receive a dialogue manual to begin their five discussions with the couple they sponsor. Sponsor Couples provide our engaged couples with an opportunity to discuss issues and concerns beyond wedding day preparations. We especially welcome couples whose life journey may include a previous marriage or a marriage that celebrates the blending of different religious faiths.

Meeting with the engaged couple will be held in the Sponsor Couple's home or arrangements can be made to meet at the parish.
These meetings are approximately once or twice a month for 2 to 2/12 hours for a total of 5 meetings with an engaged couple.
Training: The manual and your life experience provide the most important training, but we invite Sponsor Couples to continuing education and social events during the year.
