Marriage Prep Ministry

The Marriage Prep program at St. Joseph is a parish-based ministry that enables an engaged couple to share and learn from the day-to-day experiences of a married couple who are members of the parish. As part of a couple-to-couple approach to marriage preparation, the sponsor couple encourages and supports the engaged couple in much the same way as sponsors for Baptism and Confirmation.  The materials used are approved by the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

New Sponsor Couples are always invited to join.  If you feel called to serve in this role, please complete and submit the form below.

We adhere to the Archdiocese of Baltimore Policy for the Protection of Child and Youth. All adult volunteers need to register on our management compliance website   and read the Archdiocesan Code of Conduct and Statement of Policy.  For more information click here.
