Formation for couples preparing to marry in the Catholic Church
Consisting of online and mentored preparation courses and multimedia resources for couples marrying in the Catholic church, the SmartLoving series provides flexible options for you to choose according to your needs.
Smart Loving Engaged is a marriage formation programme that fully integrates:
Presented by husband and wife teams, the perspectives and experience of both sexes are brought to each topic with examples and personal stories, so making the concepts come alive in relatable and relevant ways which offer profound opportunities for personal discovery.
Usable immediately for a direct impact on a relationship at whatever stage and throughout marriage.
For an effective and powerful sacramental preparation of the engaged couple, helping them to grow into the fullness of their spiritual potential and mission to love.
Combining a number of adult learning methods, the course is designed to be used in one of four ways – couple to couple mentoring, online correspondence, small home-centred groups or use with larger groups in parish facilities. Core content is presented on DVD and is supported by comprehensive participant materials with additional take-home activities to stimulate discussion in private.
Internationally approved, well resourced and with guidance available, Smart Loving Engaged offers an easy and supported way for parishes to provide marriage preparation for their engaged couples whose life-long intimate love affair can witness to the profound depths of God’s love and be a source of inspiration and encouragement to their children and extended community.
