Marriage Preparation Ministry: The Diocese and parish make use of the FOCCUS: Facilitating Open Couple Communication tool. The FOCCUS Ministry, a highly successful and very rewarding ministry for Catholic married couples, needs couples to assist in sessions of dialogue with those who plan to get married. The marriage prepration ministers would meet with future couples at least twice to administer the unit and also to share reflections upon its results.
Diocesan Requirements to be a FOCCUS Couple: 1) Married for at least five years; 2) Be in a valid Catholic Marriage; 3) Practicing their faith on a regular basis; 4) Attend an appropriate training on the use of FOCCUS. For further information, contact Michele Benigno at (352)394-3562, ext. 122.
Annulments: The Catholic Church presumes that marriages are valid, binding spouses for life. When couples do separate or divorce, therefore, the Church examines in detail their mariage to determine if, right from the start, some essential element was missing in the relationship. If you would like to look into the possibility of seeking an annulment through the Catholic Church, contact us. For additional information contact Fr. Cromwell Cabrisos at the parish office (352)394-3562, ext. 102, or email email@example.com.
