"Today, there are those who say that marriage is out of fashion... They say that it is not worth making a life-long commitment, making a definitive decision, ‘or ever’, because we do not know what tomorrow will bring. I ask you, instead, to be revolutionaries, I ask you to swim against the tide; yes, I am asking you to rebel against this culture that sees everything as temporary and that ultimately believes you are incapable of responsibility, that believes you are incapable of true love." -Pope Francis

After you have attended a Before We Say I Do session, you will meet with your Presider and be assigned a mentor couple. A mentor couple has been specially trained and is ready to walk with you on your marriage preparation journey. Having been through the ups (and downs!) of marriage, they are uniquely qualified to answer your questions and help you lay a strong foundation for your marriage. You will meet with your mentor couple 6-7 times, usually in their home. It is your opportunity to discuss the results of your FOCCUS survey and "hot button" topics such as finances, sexuality, stewardship and communication.
