The REFOCCUS Marriage Ministry of St. Bonaventure Church is dedicated to helping good marriages get even better. REFOCCUS is ideal for married couples that wish to spend time and energy on their relationship, but desire a little direction and skill building assistance in doing so. The program is centered around five key topics including:
Marriage as a Process
The REFOCCUS schedule fits a "Weekend" format. The first session will be held on a Friday evening primarily covering introductions and the "foundational" topic of Marriage as a Process. The Saturday session will include presentations, one-on-one interactions, and small group discussion regarding the topics of Compatibility, Intimacy, Communication, and Commitment. Couples and their children will then be invited to attend the Saturday Vigil Mass in the Main Church where a special "Renewal of Vows" will be conducted. After the Mass, couples and their children are invited to a special reception in the Parish Center to close the REFOCCUS Program.
Free childcare will be available On-site throughout the program for potty-trained children. Childcare will be supervised by Virtus trained adults.
