Mission: Families, intimate communities of life and love, sharing in the life and mission of the Church (cf Familiaris Consortio, 17)
Vision: Being a Visible Sign of Love for Others
Like a baton, faith is passed down from generation to generation. Imagine a Church where experienced couples share the joys and struggles of married life with engaged and newly married couples, inspiring them to stay connected with the sacramental life of the parish. Proper preparation before receiving any Sacrament is crucial.
The Couple Mentor Journey (CMJ) is a time for couples to dedicate more time to prepare for marriage by learning from the lived experience of their couple mentors. CMJ provides engaged and newlywed couples with:
- a stronger base for their marriage with continuous ‘live’ marriage preparation;
- the opportunity to form relationships with their couple mentor; and
- a connection to the faith life of the parish community.
