During these times of COVID-19 and the directive not to gather in numbers over ten, catechesis for those preparing for marriage using the Joy Filled Marriage (JFM) programme will continue online.
Santa Rosa, Arima; St Philip and St James, Chaguanas; St Joseph RC, St Joseph; Our Lady of Perpetual Help, San Fernando; Church of the Incarnation, Maloney; and St Anthony’s, Petit Valley are currently hosting the JFM programme with staggered starts in January, February and March. Approximately, 40 engaged couples are enrolled in the JFM programme across the Archdiocese.
The Joy Filled Marriage programme helps prepare engaged couples to embrace God’s plan for the Sacrament of Matrimony. It is a marriage preparation programme that covers not only the sacramentality and theology of marriage but also incorporates practical life skills to live out the rich Catholic vision of marriage.
