The Engaged Couple Guide for Catholic Marriage Preparation is a valuable and practical resource for any couple preparing for marriage in the Catholic Church. Fully in line with Catholic teaching and the Roman Missal, the Engaged Couple Guide is designed especially for use with the FOCCUS© Pre-Marriage Inventory and may be used as part of a formal marriage preparation process or as a stand-alone preparation resource for couples who are working individually with clergy or trained lay facilitators. Along with a welcome to all engaged couples by the Most Reverend George J. Lucas, Archbishop of Omaha, the Engaged Couple Guide includes sections prompting further reflection and discussion on 1) the FOCCUS© Pre-Marriage Inventory, 2) Marriage in the Catholic Church including Prayer, Theology of the Body, Evangelization, Covenant, Sacrament, Vocation, the Mass, the Saints, Planning Your Family Naturally, Cohabitation, Convalidation, Interfaith Marriage and Remarriage, 3)Planning the Order of Service with liturgy texts and removable planning sheets for the celebrant and the couple, and 4) an inside back pocket for specialized resources to be determined by parish or diocesan staff.
