Peek Inside! See a SAMPLE segment from this marriage prep program.

Strong Foundations is a Catholic values-based program designed to prepare engaged couples for the hard work of creating a loving marriage with God at its center. While this program can’t ensure a lifetime of marital perfection, it will realistically address the issues important for a lasting marriage. Couples will learn about themselves and their partners in a way few couples experience prior to marriage. In addition, they will learn the basic skills needed to handle the normal (and not-so-normal) transitions involved in marriage. Within the pages of this book, they will also find many of the issues our Catholic Bishops want couples to consider before making their marriage commitment.

Together participants will look at core values as a couple; their readiness to make their marriage a genuine choice; your need to Communicate and resolve conflicts; and the challenges they will be facing and sharing—with God’s help. The practical worksheets provided here will help couples look at all these issues and consider them seriously as they begin building the strong foundations that will sustain and enrich their marriages.
