Next Step guides those discerning marriage or seriously dating through an 8 week program that seeks to help prepare for and enrich the understanding of the Sacrament of Marriage.
Dates: 8 Tuesdays in a row starting July 12
Cost: $75 per person

“Next Step exceeded my expectations in the variety of topics covered. If I’m honest, I wanted this program to help me know how to tell for sure if my significant other is “the one”, but Next Step made me realize that I need to cultivate my relationship with Jesus and develop original solitude first and foremost, and that discerning marriage is also about discerning God’s overall call for my life.” -Summer 2020 Next Step Participant
Would you recommend Next Step to a friend? “Absolutely. I think it’s such a beautiful gift to be able to dive into all of these topics in a structured way like this BEFORE reaching the engagement stage. This has been an invaluable experience for me, personally and otherwise.” -Spring 2020 Participant
Interested in mentoring young adults? We are also looking for married mentor couples to help facilitate small group discussions for this 8-week discernment course. If interested becoming mentors and/or hosting a Next Step group at your parish, email Amy Northrop, firstname.lastname@example.org.
“David and I are continually impressed with these young people…We came into this with the intention of “giving,” but have been so incredibly blessed throughout the process! I just wanted to thank you allowing us to participate in the program! It truly is “in giving that we receive.” – Kelli H., mentor
