TOBET4ENGAGED

In Action

2017 Program 

in North Texas

In 2017 so far, TOBET has presented our marriage preparation program to over 250 engaged couples in one diocese in North Texas. The practical, everyday wisdom from real married couples and the wealth of life topics–from communication and conflict resolution to finances and family planning–was incorporated into a presentation of the profound, breath-taking teaching of St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and his examination of married love.

This seemingly disconnected set of subjects, when integrated into a holistic vision, really resonated with these couples! We collected feedback on their experiences (bride and groom individually) and compiled the stats. We’ll let them speak for themselves!

“We have received a wealth of knowledge about our faith and Church teaching. We are leaving even more convinced and convicted of our decision to marry [in the Church]. Thank you!”

%

35% planned to abstain until after their wedding, who had previously been sexually active (77%)

“It was very insightful, how bringing both religion and reality together in modern-day marriage. I am happy we attended these classes. It really opened my eyes about NFP, marriage and life in general. I would highly recommend this TOBET [program].”
