Sponsor Couple Program is a parish-based ministry that enables an engaged couple to share and learn from the day-to-day experiences of a married couple who are members of their parish. As part of a couple-to-couple approach to marriage preparation, the sponsor couple encourages and supports the engaged couple in much the same way as sponsors for Baptism and Confirmation.
Time: The Archdiocese offers training for Sponsor Couples a couple times a year. The engaged couple meets with the sponsor couple five times in the sponsor couple’s home. They use a book entitled For Better and Forever.
