Has anyone here gone through the sponsor couple program with the Catholic Church? My fiancé and I had been looking at doing a different pre-cana program but we've just confirmed our priest and learned he really prefers his couples to do the sponsor couple program, and I was hoping to hear other people's experience with it

    We ended up having to do an encounter weekend because the church preparing us (it’s where we live because we’re getting married 4 hours away) promised they’d have a couple for us and then backed out because they no longer had enough. We didn’t mind doing it in 1 weekend, and we met several couples our age getting married, too, so that was fun.

    Hey there, Erin! Have you and your FS looked into this more? What have you decided to do?

    No we haven't. We're going to meet with the priest in the next month or two so we'll probably just wait until then to talk to him to see what he officially wants us to do

    I found out four days before my wedding that my fiance and I were supposed to have a sponsor couple, but our priest never gave us their name, and they never contacted me. We also had prep books, which we completed but that we were supposed to discuss under the guidance of a sponsor couple. It sounds as though your priest prefers the sponsor couple program, so hopefully it means the parish has the support in place that you will actually interact with your sponsor couple. Personally, if I had it to do over I would have asked the priest for online options, as we were living in different countries during our engagement.

    If you're unsure, this is probably the best idea Smiley smile How is your planning coming along otherwise?
