Engaged Encounter

Sponsor Couple Program

The Sponsor Couple Program is a great option for couples who prefer meeting face-to-face with a couple in their parish in a relaxed, informal setting. Each session covers topics related to marriage in the context of the Catholic Faith.

Sponsor couples are selected by the parish and trained by the Office of Marriage & Family Life to serve as a model of Christian marriage to the engaged couple of love in action. Choosing this option has the added benefit of connecting the newly married couple with another couple in the parish who can help them feel welcomed by the parish community.

Contact your parish priest to see if your parish offers sponsor couples.
