The goal of a pre-marriage inventory is to help you self-identify the strengths and growth areas of your relationship. The questionnaire address topics ranging from finances to spirituality to parenting, etc. The pre-marriage inventory we use at St Isidore is called FOCCUS (Facilitate Open Couple Communication, Understanding and Study). You start by individually taking the online questionnaire then meet with one of our local certified FOCCUS Facilitators to review.
Our online marriage preparation classes can be found at https://www.catholicmarriageprep.com/
The classes take about 6-8 weeks to finish and must be completed in 3 months from the start date.
The Diocese of Sacramento requires that all engaged couples attend 1 introductory session on Natural Family Planning. Our parish is fortunate to have a local Creighton Instructor to lead classes here at our parish.
Our next scheduled classes will be:
Saturday, August 6, 2022 in the Assisi Room
Even if you are not enrolled in marriage prep, all are welcome to attend.
