Marriage and Family Ministry offers training for clergy and couples who help prepare couples for the sacrament of marriage, as well as formation after receiving the sacrament.

An online relationship inventory that customizes to couples – dating, engaged, or married, and is mandatory for engaged couples preparing for marriage. The program is also enriching for married couples, helping them to build on their strengths and to grow together with the help of trained clergy and married couples.

We train clergy and couple ministers to administer the relationship inventory and work with couples. The training course costs $100 to train and certify clergy (new trainees) Contact our office for more information. Please reach out if you would like to develop a team in your area.
