Preparing couples for marriage is an important—and evangelizing—ministry of the Church. In your role as a minister in the marriage formation process, you will accompany couples and invite them to discover the dignity and beauty of marriage with Christ as the center and foundation of their union.

El matrimonio en el Señor: Prepararar a la pareja para el sacramento matrimonial provides marriage ministers with fully prepared formation sessions in order to facilitate discussion with engaged couples preparing to be married in the Catholic Church. Designed to be used along with the couple’s booklet, El matrimonio en el Señor: Un recurso de formación católica, this facilitator’s guide will help you to enrich the couple’s spiritual life and to encourage their active participation in the life of the Church.  This resource includes:

  • Five formation sessions corresponding to each session in the couple’s booklet
  • Facilitator’s preparation guidance
  • Suggestions for facilitating conversation with adults
  • Sample texts and conversation sparkers
  • Questions for discussion
  • Scripts for opening and closing prayer rituals
  • Appendix for leading wedding liturgy preparation
  • workshops

This resource may be used in a variety of ways from day-long formation events and weekend retreats to meetings with sponsor couples. Suggestions for adapting the material to your diocesan or parish needs are included, and additional materials and videos are provided on a supplemental website. The appendix with session guides, preparation forms, and videos may be used by parishes to lead wedding liturgy workshops with couples. >El matrimonio en el Señor: Prepararar a la pareja para el sacramento matrimonial provides you with all the tools needed to facilitate a dynamic and meaningful formation experience for all those preparing to be married in the Catholic Church.

"Formation for the sacrament of marriage tends to focus on communication skills, economics, and reflecting on family life. This process tends to treat the liturgical celebration of marriage as simply another topic to address. In El matrimonio en el Señor: Preparar a la pareja para su sacramento matrimonial the liturgical formation of the couples receives prominence. Departing from a catechumenal model, the couple is invited to ask the great questions about love, children, and conversion to Christ in the context of a contemplative reflection on the rite. At the same time, the authors of this work are aware of the needs of young adults to engage in conversation around these themes rather than receiving endless instruction. This resource is theologically sound, liturgically insightful, and pedagogically astute. It's rare to see a resource for marriage formation that checks all these boxes. " --Timothy P. O'Malley Academic Director Notre Dame Center for Liturgy "The liturgical approach used in this resource is indispensable for today’s Catholic couple. It lays the foundation for the meaning of sacraments and gives profound meaning to what it means to be a married Christian in the world. . . . The emphasis on formation and the use of the principles of adult faith formation, especially reflection and interaction, demonstrates that this resource not only evangelizes, but is a key opportunity to minister to participants in a unique way. The rich connection to Pope Francis’ Amoris laetitia, illustrates a resource that is pastoral to the core, and, in turn, will enhance marriage formation and ultimately revitalize parish life." --Donna Eschenauer, PhD St. Joseph’s (Inter-diocesan) Seminary and College Yonkers, New York "This facilitator’s guide has integrated the marriage rite into a formation opportunity for couples. Engaged couples are eager to listen to their peers who are on the journey to marriage and with this resource couples are invited to share in the excitement, joy, and trials of preparing for a lifetime sacramental life together. This guide assists the facilitator/s with materials, questions, and suggestions giving participants a comprehensive marriage preparation experience." --Elizabeth Reha Director of Family Life Diocese of Little Rock, AK
