Ten married couples make up our parish based Marriage Preparation Team. Team couples help engaged couples that anticipate receiving the Sacrament of Marriage at Saint Paul. Two team couples host a Marriage Preparation Day hosted by the church four or five times a year. Engaged couples meet in the Team’s home on a Saturday afternoon and evening. Couples discuss heritage, communication, finances, family issues and spirituality in marriage. The Diocese of Gary requires participation in a Marriage Preparation program. Along with the Marriage Preparation Day, couples take a FOCCUS compatibility test and meet with a team couple on an individual basis to review the test.
To become involved as a Team Couple or to participate in the program as an engaged couple, please contact Gary and Carlene Peterson at 219-688-8201 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
