Marriage Preparation Seminar

One in Christ Home-Study Marriage Seminar

One in Christ has been designed to be completed as a two-part online home-study seminar. The home-study allows couples to work at their own pace with the readings, videos and reflections.

From the Author

Back in 2005 when, with several lay couples, I began the One in Christ marriage seminar, we asked ourselves how we could effectively evangelize to a culture that has become increasingly secular and hostile to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His message of salvation.  With the support of His Eminence, the late Francis Cardinal George and with the assistance of the Priest Advisory Board to the Respect Life Office in the Archdiocese of Chicago, we decided to create a program that would not only prepare engaged couples for the wonderful Sacrament of Matrimony, but would also re-evangelize fallen away and lukewarm Catholics.  The program allows them to experience a truly faith-deepening conversion and an awakening to the beauty, goodness, and truth about marriage, family life, and the Catholic Faith. We discovered that by evangelizing couples with the Gospel of Life, within the context of marriage preparation, couples come to appreciate the total value of human life transmitted through marriage.



but one flesh.
