Witness to Love Training

Witness to Love is a model of marriage formation integrating modern principles of psychology and virtues to help couples facilitate an authentic dialogue about their relationship with the assistance of their chosen mentor couple. It better helps parishes to renew marriage preparation using the catechumenal model Pope Francis has encouraged in the Church. The Witness to Love training is part of a larger effort to better equip parishes to be missional communities.
