The Diocese of Owensboro offers an online, on demand marriage preparation program designed by the Archdiocese of Chicago to meet the needs of engaged couples separated by distance. This program is endorsed by the USCCB and used in many dioceses. It includes a Catholic Couple Checkup, a pre-marital inventory which can be used in place of Prepare & Enrich or FOCCUS or PMI. This course offers a marriage preparation alternative only for those engaged couples in extraordinary circumstances such as those living far apart or where one or both parties is a member of the military. Couples must receive their Pastor’s approval to use this program.
