🔴 A new and revised version of this program will soon be available. Click here to learn more.
Living a Joy-Filled Marriage is a virtue-based, life-skills marriage preparation program designed to help engaged couples set patterns of thought and behavior that will ensure a lifelong, joy-filled marriage.
Living a Joy-Filled Marriage springs from the teaching of St. John Paul II’s calling to families and couples to explore their uniqueness by seeking their identity and mission in Christ.
This program incorporates a three-stage approach:
- Learning Stage: First, couples learn sound principles and a fresh, virtue-based approach to life skills through the narrative of a live presentation.
- Discuss & Discover Stage: Through a variety of focused activities, couples discuss their relationships, learn about themselves, and begin applying what they have learned.
- Plan & Build Stage: The final stage helps couples to recognize topics they may need to discuss at a later date, to identify shared goals, and to set concrete plans to build a joy-filled marriage. All of this is captured in this planning document, The Marriage Action Plan (MAP).
