Witness to Love is a virtues-based, Catechumenate model of marriage renewal and preparation that integrates modern principles of psychology and the virtues to help couples facilitate an authentic dialogue about their relationship.
To provide local churches with the tools to transform existing programs of marriage preparation into wellsprings of dynamic marriage discipleship that foster both parish connection and nurture authentic accompaniment before and after the wedding day.
The key to Witness to Love is that engaged couples are invited to choose their own mentors. The mentors must meet some basic requirements. The married couple is trained to mentor the engaged couple. Unlike other mentor models there is no need to build trust in order for the marriage prep process to work – the trust already exists. Deep conversions, encounter with Christ, and renewal happen consistently for both the mentors and the engaged couple.
