In light of the circumstances surrounding Covd-19, the in-person Archdiocesan Marriage Preparation Conferences in English have been moved online and couples are invited to register at this link: https://archmil.regfox.com/online-marriage-preparation-conference. Couples can view these pre-recorded videos at any time and at their own pace. This conference includes the full NFP workshop that engaged couples are invited to attend as Step 3 of their Marriage Prep, as indicated on the Archdiocesan Marriage Prep timeline below.
Marriage Preparation Conferences in Spanish will be done virtually through Zoom. Participants can register here at this link.
The Catholic Engaged Encounter Weekend Retreats are virtual. Sign up here: www.jolietee.org. Contact John and Louise Vos (firstname.lastname@example.org) for the cost for the virtual weekend.
Meetings to plan the wedding liturgy, meetings with the pastor/pastoral staff, and meetings to review the FOCCUS and other pre-marital inventories should still take place, either in-person or virtually.
