SIX DATES is based on the book Happy Together: The Catholic Blueprint for a Loving Marriage by John Bosio. The program consists of thought-provoking material for six dates. Spouses start their date by coming to the parish, viewing a brief video, and then continuing on their date. Child care is provided.SIX DATES helps couples strengthen their marriage by encouraging them to make time to enjoy each other’s company. Dating is a ritual that comes naturally to all couples. Unfortunately, as years go by in a marriage, this practice is often neglected.
SIX DATES for Catholic Couples fills a gap in parish resources for married couples. It’s a response to the call of the National Pastoral Initiative for Marriage of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops for materials with a positive message about marriage. In this spirit, SIX DATES presents an inspiring view of Christian marriage by interweaving the wisdom of Catholic tradition, data from the social sciences, and life experiences of married couples.
